Meet Greg Kenton, Billionaire In the Making Greg Kenton has two obsessions-making money and his long-standing competition with his annoying neighbor, Maura Shaw. So when Greg discovers that Maura is cutting into his booming Chunky comics business with her own original ilustrated minibooks, he's ready to declare war. The problem is, Greg has to admit that Maura's books are good, and soon the longtime enemies become unlikely business partners. But their budding partnership is threatened when the principal bans the sale of their comics in school. Suddenly, the two former rivals find themselves united against an adversary tougher than they ever were to each other. Will their enterprise-and their friendship-prevail?

But after he sees all the spare change the kids at his school have, he decides to make and sell comics, which turns out to be a success. Then some competition arises, so the principal bans comics. Greg decides to team up with Maura, the other competitor for the market, and together they try to lift the ban. Awesome book!! This book was not disappointing at all.

                    It can inspire you on ways you can make money and raise money for school. And it does teach you not to sell things at school and partnership means business. 😺

                      I really enjoyed reading Greg's attempts in making money. First the toys, then the comic books. There is even an illustration with instructions on how to make mini comics. However, Greg has some stiff competition with Maura, his archrival. Who will have the better ideas: detailed Maura or "rich" Greg?
