Summary

A story of fame and fortune, making mistakes and learning to be true to yourself.  

When a little white lie leads to a huge dose of trouble. Cole is the odd one out at school: the other kids have the latest gadgets and trainers, while his family struggles to make ends meet, until the day one of his paintings is talent-spotted and sells for thousands of pounds at a posh London gallery. Suddenly, Cole is the toast of the international art world, the star guest on TV shows, rich beyond his wildest dreams and hailed as a boy genius! 

Being famous is FANTASTIC, but Cole has a guilty secret which, if exposed, will bring everything crashing down around him.

Brilliantly narrated

My Granddaughter and I absolutely loved this audible book. Exiting , funny wonderful narration didn’t want the book to Finnish. We are now Lisa Thompson fans. Searching for our next audible from her.

The boy who fooled the world

This was an amazing book, in which a boy called Cole works with 2 other companions to solve a mystery, and during this he paints his own artwork. Recommend for 7-10 year olds.
