2.0 out of 5 stars The book wasn't great because the story really didn't even start until towards ..., August 15, 2014
This review is from: Owen Foote, Money Man (Owen Foots) (Paperback)
This book was okay. It's about a boy (Owen) who wants to start earning allowance from his parents and they are willing to give him allowance but he does not want to do work for it. As the story moves along he tries to find more and more ideas of how to earn money. He starts a dog walking business and a dog pees on his pants so he gives up on that. Finally his neighbor asks him if he wants to help him build a pond in his backyard, and Owen agrees. Once he is done building the pond he earns $20 for helping and spends it on a couple of fish. The book wasn't great because the story really didn't even start until towards the end of the book, but it does have a good ending.

2.0 out of 5 stars Stick with "The Toothpaste Millionaire" by Jean Merrill, May 15, 2011
This review is from: Owen Foote, Money Man (Owen Foots) (Paperback)
I'm a mom with a family of boys.

This book was merely ok - it was an easy read. Owen wants money, and his parents are willing to extend him an allowance if he takes on responsibility for more work. He ends up working for a neighbor who pays him $20... but he never does the chores at home.

Meantime, the book has plenty of potty humor and references to fake vomit. Owen speaks disrespectfully to both his parents, although he is respectful toward the neighbor. And there are dried yellow stains on the floor all around Owen's toilet. Give me a break. And a neighbor's dog urinates on Owen's leg.

When you compare this book to "The Toothpaste Millionaire" by Jean Merrill, this one really loses its appeal.
