Gary Paulsen's funny follow-up to "Lawn Boy" is full of big surprises and big laughs.
Lawn Boy says: The summer I was twelve, 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 hundred 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. . . .
