Clements, who wrote the bestselling children's book FRINDLE, creates terrific young characters who are good students but slightly rebellious. Sixth-grader Greg Canton, who has "heaps of talent," has decided to make his fortune. School seems a land of opportunity to the young entrepreneur. Narrator John H. Mayer ably creates Clements's many characters. From Greg himself to his nemesis and eventual business partner, Maura, to family members, teachers, and principal, Mayer brings to life differing personalities while catching all the humor inherent in this story and maintaining the drama as events unfold. An entertaining and provocative look at children, money, and values, the story concludes with an author interview that listeners will enjoy.
