As the prodigal child of a wealthy family, young Hubert Horatio is everything his parents ever wanted in a son, but when their spending ways threaten the demise of the family estate, young Hubert Horatio has to find a way to convince his parents to become more thrifty in order to save what little savings they have left.

HARPERCOLL
Boy genius Hubert Horatio Bartle Bobton-Trent-H for short- is the answer to his rich parents' prayers. He is their dear companion, their fiercest board game adversary, and their frequent guest at parties. But this prodigy's parents don't share his knack at accounting-and they can't imagine ever running out of money. Will Hubert be able to save the Bobton-Trent's fabulous estate - or might they be just as happy without it, after all? With exuberant collage illustrations and a hilarious text, award-winning author and illustrator Lauren Child has created an irreverent story about the true value of money and the dividends of happiness.

I love Lauren Child and her children's books, and this is another gem. The characters are so eccentric and likeable, and the story is so well-illustrated and well-told. It's yet another reason to keep snatching Child's books off the shelf and taking them home for a read.
