"The grass grew, and so did business. Arnold invested my money in many things. One of them was a prizefighter. All of a sudden I was the sponsor of my very own fighter, Joey Pow. That's when my 12th summer got really interesting."
Gary Paulsen's comic story about a summer job becomes a slapstick lesson in business as one boy turns a mountain of grass into a mountain of cash.
Hilarious, funny, and awesome, Gary Paulsen writes GREAT books. Tom also narrates great!
I liked how VERY funny this book was.
I would recommend this book to someone who likes comedy.
I rate this ************************************* Stars!

This is a great class book for the end of the school year, it keeps the kids very engaged during a time where attention span is almost nonexistent! I would also highly recommend it for a summer book or for reluctant readers.

I purchased this book for my 10 yr old to inspire him to read about things he was interested in. I started reading it too & couldn't put it down. It was very entertaining. Therefore, I bought the sequel, Lawn Boy returns & it was equally entertaining. My son enjoyed it as well.
