This book is about the day Little Bill thought he became rich. You see, Little Bill and his friends were playing a game they made up. They were having a lot of fun, but Little Bill had to get a new stick. When he went looking for the new stick he found the biggest diamond in the world. He thought he was super rich.

The reason why we enjoyed this book so much is because Little Bill offered to split the money he thought he was going to recieve from the diamond. And it was a lot of fun to hear all the different plans the friends made for the money they were going to get. We also like the ending, when Little Bill finds out what he really found. But we are not going to tell you. You will just have to read this enjoyable, interesting, funny and exciting book.
