The summer I was 12, mowing lawns with Grandpa's old riding mower turned into big business. With advice from Arnold the stockbroker, I learned all about making money.

Six weeks and hundreds of thousands of dollars later, life got more complicated. You see, the prizefighter I sponsor, Joey Pow, won a big fight. And a TV interview made me famous. As Arnold says, Capitalism plus publicity equals monster commerce. Even my best friends wanted a piece of the action. Meanwhile, some scary guys showed up at Joey's gym. . . .

Gary Paulsen's funny follow-up to Lawn Boy is full of big surprises and big laughs.

    " Law boy returns!!! Remember lawn boy well he's back and his prizefighter JOEY POW is now a champion. This new odd character named Zed lurks arouond and kind of has behavior problems. I also think that a 12 year old boy is a little young to own a lawn mowing business that makes him very whealthy. Lawn boy returns is as funny as the first lawn boy but is very different still because in the first book is when he starts and he's a close by business so in the second he is famous. Now people want autographs from him. I think these books are very interesting and I give them both 4 stars. "

    " An enjoyable followup to Lawn Boy. Lots of great lessons for kids on economics and life. The truth is, nothing in life is simple and sometimes even making tons of money comes with its own set of problems. This book moves at such a fast pace it doesn't really matter that the characters aren't super well developed. There's enough unique action to keep readers interested. This series won't be for everyone, but I know I would have loved it as a young boy. "

    " I thought it was good and I also thought that Gary Paulsen wrote this book wittier than the first one. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Lia Tan | 12/11/2013

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Rebecca | 12/7/2013

    " We would have been fine if the Lawn Boy didn't return. Same story line..... "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Connie | 11/30/2013

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Tyler | 10/27/2013

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Kenny | 10/3/2013

    " I love this book. Its very interesting "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Sarah | 10/3/2013

    " I'm not sure this is a stand alone, I think you will have had to have read Lawn Boy to follow it...it is a cute sequel. I love that Paulsen is showing his silly side...he has a great sense of humor. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Kristen | 10/2/2013

    " Cute ending to the story. Fun little reads for a weekend. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Deborah Morgan | 9/1/2013

    " The adventures continue but this time on the negative side. Friends who are awed, the IRS, Joey is to throw a fight, Zed threatens Grandma...it's too much for Lawn Boy. It's good to have friends and employees like Arnold to straighten it all out. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Nael P. | 6/23/2013

    " well i think this book is really good so far and has a few more characters than last time so i hope its going to have a better story line this time around "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Heather | 2/12/2013

    " A funny follow-up with the same great characters and a few new ones. I absolutely love Joey Pow and Grandma. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jacob. R | 1/20/2013

    " This was a great book but slightly easy and the story was a little hard to follow. Personaly enjoyed the first book better. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Sharon Oslin | 10/19/2012

    " Cute story and a quick read. But, I really enjoyed the first book better, especially because it discussed the stock market a lot and fit nicely with an integrated unit. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Anne Smith | 5/2/2012

    " Very similar to Lawn Boy with the writing and use of economic terms throughout it. A little difficult for fourth graders to understand. Could be used for older students to go along with an economics unit. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Deborah Darsie | 2/8/2012

    " The end to Lawn Boy's business adventures...for now? "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Amy Hendrickson | 2/3/2012

    " I am a big fan of Gary Paulsen but this one wasn't one of my favorites. I gave it three stars though because my male students really liked the potty humor. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Suzanne | 1/3/2012

    " I love Gary Paulens's gritty of making characters so vivid and real. This is a sequel to Lawnboy. Though I loved Lawnboy's silly plot, this rehashing of it left me a little disappointed. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Lu Ann Brobst | 11/2/2011

    " Another quick read with a fun story. Book 2 in a series. When the MC earns more money than he knows what to do with in his successful lawn mowing business, he had to figure out how to bring his life, and his income, back to what he wanted them to be, less crazy! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Beth O'Connell | 10/24/2011

    " OK, not compelling, but short and entertaining. Shows some of the downsides of capitalism. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Kilbourne | 6/24/2011

    " The same exept the first lawn boy was better but still great... "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jennifer | 4/22/2011

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Breanne | 4/10/2011

    " Meh. This was fun but not as well balanced as the first book. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Claire | 4/5/2011

    " Lawn Boy is a hoot, this continues the story- tax problems, ambulance chasing attorneys, organized crime and grandma and Joey Pow hitting it off like long lost soul mates....
    An amusing conclusion that wraps up the Lawn Boy saga. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Patrick | 1/20/2011

    " Neat sequel to Lawn Boy. Just as funny as the first book. Lots of good economic and life lessons in this one too. Also a short and fast read.

    Wacky faux economic term titles to the chapters that mya or may not pertain to that (or any) chapter. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Angela | 1/7/2011

    " Just as wacky and wryly humorous as the first one (Lawn Boy). This is a young man who manages to have tremendous luck and adventures without trying--and looks to be having more with the set up for another book. Slim, fun read---great for boys! "

    " Not quite as funny as the first one, but still a worthy follow-up. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Shaunaelias | 10/28/2010

    " This book was fine. It seemed to rush to the ending without much going on in the middle. I also think that some of the humor was a bit too sarcastic for the age group I feel it was written for. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Heather | 10/7/2010
