The book follows a pretty simple idea - a 12 year-old boy is given his deceased grandfather's small lawn mower. He mows his family's tiny lawn just to try it out and he is offered the chance to get paid to mow a neighbor's lawn. He decides he needs some money to buy a new inner tube for his bicycle tire so he might as well go for it. One job leads to another and because the local lawn service owner has recently left town with the wife of one of his customers there are a lot of lawns that need servicing. There are so many lawns that "Lawn Boy" has multiple adult employees, a stockbroker advising him and more money than he knows what to do with.Read more ›
The only new character is Zed, none of the others have grown,changed or even made me want to start a company of my own!
Lawn Boy Returns is a funny book that has funny scenes. He goes to places like McDonalds on his lawnmower and the workers think he's weird. He has a lot of weird friends that don't stop dribbling a basketball and reading a book. The lawn boy is funny and it's a nice story for all ages.
It's a great book to read because has a lot of great parts. The plot is really good because he mows lawns like every day and his friend showed up asking if they could help. Lawn Boy said they could if they had lawnmowers. They did so they joined and they each took separate lawns for better business. That is only part of the book so I'm not going to spoil the book. The rest of the book is really good so you should read it.
The author is really great and writes a lot of other stories to. His name is Gary Paulsen and he wrote many other books that are funny and good to read. This is one of the books that he wrote and it one a prize. He has a lot of great experience and is really great with writing books that are interesting and have great plots. He is just a really great author and is known worldwide because he goes on a lot of journeys and writes books about them.
You should read this book because I have given you a lot great reasons why and if you don't want to read it you don't have to. All I'm saying is that you should take a look into it but don't strain your self about it. If I wanted to rate it on a scale of 1 to 5 I would give it 4 because it is really great so just think about it and maybe you will like it to.
