9780618759255: The Toothpaste Millionaire

Sixth-grader Rufus Mayflower doesn't set out to become a millionaire. He just wants to save on toothpaste. Betting he can make a gallon of his own for the same price as one tube from the store, Rufus develops a step-by-step production plan with help from his good friend Kate MacKinstrey. By the time he reaches the eighth grade, Rufus makes more than a gallon—he makes a million! This fun, breezy story set in 1960s Cleveland, Ohio contains many real-life mathematical problems which the characters must solve to succeed in their budding business. Includes black-and-white illustrations by Jan Palmer.

This edition includes an exclusive author interview and reader's guide with book summary and discussion questions.

Jean Merrill is the award-winning author of over thirty books for children, including The Superlative Horse, The Black Sheep, and the wellknown satirical novel The Pushcart War.

Review:

"Merrill's idealistic construct of how to succeed in business without really trying functions both as a light story and as an explication of free enterprise mechanics." -- Booklist, ALA

"The illustrations are engaging, the style is light, the project interesting -- and Rufus a believable genius." -- The Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books

"Breezy and fast-moving." -- The Horn Book
