Johnny Nothing is a story for a boy who has nothing. He has no clothes, no food, no friends. That's why he gets the nickname, Johnny Nothing. But it is not true that he has nothing. He has something that many people don't have: the biggest heart in the world, a whole heart full of love. When his uncle dies, Johnny inherits one million pounds. Yes, you've heard well, one million pounds. And suddenly, he is the most popular boy in the world.
I'm not sure that this a children's book. Many adults can find themselves in this story. Fullfilled with many comical moments, actually it is a sad story. No one deserves parents like Johnny's. No one should appreciate others depending on the money status. No one should underestimate the power of the money, they can make you totally different person. Johnny reminds me of Oliver Twist. He is not an orphan, but his own parents treat him like one. But he has the purest soul in the world and he deserves the best.
It was really refreshing for me to read a book like this. It is not long, but it is well written in a unique way that captivated my attention to the very last page. Maybe woke the inner child in me :) . I liked the way the author talking directly to me as a reader, not just telling the story. He has unique way of describing the things. I loved it, and I would love to see Johnny growing older through the series.
My opinion: 4 / 5.
