One day I was 12 years old and broke. Then Grandma gave me Grandpa's old riding lawnmower. I set out to mow some lawns. More people wanted me to mow their lawns. And more and more. . . . One client was Arnold the stockbroker, who offered to teach me about "the beauty of capitalism. Supply and Demand. Diversify labor. Distribute the wealth." "Wealth?" I said. "It's groovy, man," said Arnold. If I'd known what was coming, I might have climbed on my mower and putted all the way home to hide in my room. But the lawn business grew and grew. So did my profits, which Arnold invested in many things. And one of them was Joey Pow the prizefighter. That's when my 12th summer got really interesting. From the Hardcover edition.

This book is a must read because it is action packed and full of funny moments. I enjoyed it a lot and I think that you will too. From this book I learned that sometimes when we don't get the gifts hoped for at birthdays, Christmas, or any other celebrations, we can always turn the gifts we got instead into something enjoyable or successful, like Lawn Boy's business. Read it yourself, or gift it to a friend, who knows what may happen!

Whoever thought you could make that much money that quickly. I liked this book even though it was a very short read. Joey Pow is my fave... and his grandma!!!

This boy's business started by a lawn mower. His money and business expanded after he met his neighbor, Arnold. Later a lot of uncertintinty came.
This is a great book. This is also a funny book. It shows us how his business and investments grow. Even his prizefighter won money for him. He was so lucky!!
