Review: The Richest Kids in Town

User Review  - Kristine Pratt - Goodreads

Peter needs money - fast. He wants to earn enough to go visit the friend he moved away from. Oddly enough, the more he works at earning money, the less he wants to go. A fun story about friendship and getting the job done. Liked this one a lot! Read full review

User Review  - Kate - Goodreads

I read a few chapters from this book during my student teaching experience to third graders. They loved it. The book is a little dated, but very funny. One day, I hope I get to read it all. Read full review
