Vitello sets out to make a million pounds with the help of his friends Max and Harry, and the little squirt William. But what are the four businessmen going to sell? And does Vitello have a nose for business or just for trouble?

Vitello lives in a terraced house by a ring road with his mum, where the traffic is noisy and his friends are annoying. He’s had other adventures and been in other scrapes too.

"You’ve got plenty of time to find out," said Mum.
At the end, the boy said, "You just have to buy low and sell high."
