Greg had started looking around the cafeteria, and everywhere he looked, he saw quarters. He saw kids trading quarters for ice cream sandwiches and cupcakes and cookies at the dessert table. He saw kids over at the school store trading quarters for neon pens and sparkly pencils, and for the little decorations like rubber soccer balls and plastic butterflies to stick onto the ends of those new pencils…. There were quarters all over the place, buckets of them.
At that moment Greg’s view of school changed completely and forever. School had suddenly become the most interesting place on the planet. Because young Greg Kenton had decided that school would be an excellent place to make his fortune.

    " Read this little gem with my son. I really like Andrew Clements. His writing style invokes that of Judy Blume. We laughed a lot. Also, we discussed and mulled over several topics and themes that arose in reading Lunch Money together. If you knew my son you would realize any book that can do this has truely accomplished a tricky feat. And for that, I applaud you Mr. Clements. "

    " I read this with my fifth grade class, we started off the year with Frindle and really enjoyed it. I didn't particularly care for this one and neither did the majority of my class. I probably won't use it again as a class novel study. "

    " I think the book Lunch Money by Andrew Clements was good. It is about a kid who loves to make money so he starts selling comics at his school during lunch. I liked it because I like drawing and so does the kid in the book. Also there are some funny parts in it. I do recommend the book Lunch money Because it was interesting and funny. "

    " The book was very good because I learned how to manage money. To me, it is a very important skill to learn all of these things but if you don't, there is no point of doing this and you will not get a better job. I should study hard as a businessman and a lawyer. "

    " I loved the Landry News and Frindle. This is another school story, this time about a boy interested in earning money. I was a little disappointed that the author got preachy. The boy was using his time, effort, creativity to earn money but was still made to feel guilty about his desire for success. "
