Publisher's Summary

As a punishment for lying, Kevin has lost his allowance. He doesn’t lie now, but he’s broke. He’s got to find a way to make money. Lots of it, so he can impress Tina Zabinski, the World’s Most Beautiful Girl, and ask her on a date. So Kevin gets creative - and his life becomes a financial comedy of errors. Does he really have what it takes to get filthy rich at age fourteen?
In Gary Paulsen’s hilarious follow-up to Liar, Liar, Kevin’s schemes lead him into situations that are sweet, some that are sticky, and some that are downright stinky.

Uh…So FIVE of a kind beats FOUR of a kind?

What did you like best about this story?

Kevin Spencer is 14 going on 35 and the funniest kid character you want to meet. I am a 50+ year old female but thought this book was Laugh Out Loud funny as you hear the enterprising young Kevin and his innocent but adult savvy take on earning an "honest" living. Gary Paulsen is such a witty writer and I plan on reading the rest of The Kevin series. The book brought me back to my own childhood and all the fun dreams that I had at his age. There is nothing like a clever "Young Adult" book to keep you young at heart!

What about Joshua Swanson’s performance did you like?

He is the perfect reader for this book. His hysterical voices exactly recreate kids in the teenage years and I though I was listening to my own nieces and nephews instead of an adult.
