Greg Kenton has always had a natural talent for making money. Then,
just before sixth grade, Greg makes a discovery: Almost every kid at school has
an extra quarter or two to spend almost every day.
Multiply a few quarters by a few hundred kids, and for Greg, school
suddenly looks like a giant piggy bank. All he needs is the right hammer to
crack it open. Candy and gum? Little toys? Sure, kids would love to buy stuff
like that at school. But would teachers and the principal permit it? Not
But how about comic books? Comic books might work. Especially the
chunky little ones that Greg writes and illustrates himself. Because everybody
knows school always encourages reading and writing and creativity and
individual initiative, right?
In this funny and timely novel, Andrew Clements again holds up a mirror
to real life, and invites young readers to think about money, school,
friendship, and what it means to be a success.
