Another fantastic, witty and incredibly original story from award-winning Lauren Child. Hubert Horatio or H for short is a genius at almost absolutely everything. His parents on the other hand aren't too good with money...and fritter away the family fortune. It's up to Hubert and his friend, Stanton Harcourt to sort out the mess.
