Grade 4-6–Sixth-grader Greg Kenton has always had a talent for making money. His latest scheme, creating and selling miniature comic books, looks to be a success. However, problems arise when his classmate and longtime nemesis, Maura, competes with him by making her own mini-stories. Even worse, the principal, who believes that comic books are nasty and violent, bans their sale at school. Clements has created another clever, enterprising young protagonist in Greg, who, like Nick in Frindle (S & S, 1996), also finds inconsistencies in his school's regulations and works toward change. While his intentions at the beginning are purely entrepreneurial, his outlook on money transforms to the philanthropic as he fights for the right to sell his Chunky Comics to his fellow students. Also, his relationship with Maura takes a new turn as the two enemies pool their talents and find a way to get along. The characters are rich with interesting quirks and motivations, including Mr. Z, a blood-phobic math teacher. Along with providing a fast-paced and humorous story line, the author examines concepts of true wealth, teamwork, community mindedness, and the value of creative expression. Selznick's pencil sketches add comic touches throughout.–Carol L. MacKay, Camrose Public Library, Alberta, Canada

The book is about young kids who try to make money by selling things at school such as comic books.
The main character is Greg Kenton. He is a 6th grader who works hard to make money.
The story takes place in Ashworth Intermediate School. Greg encountered an issue when the school principal no longer allowed him to sell his comic books at school. He resolved the conflict by offering to donate 10% of his profits to the school library . I like the ending of the book because Greg was allowed to continue to sell his comic books at school. I would recommend this book because it teaches you about how to grow your business. Business people would enjoy this book.
I love it because it's a story about a kid that loves to write books, and I'm a kid who loves to write books. I would recommend this to everybody.
