Product Description:
 
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 35th anniversary edition includes an exclusive author interview and reader's guide with book summary and discussion questions.

He loved it. 4 1/2 stars from my 10yo 5th grader (boy). What he enjoyed most: how the ideas turned out and the authors descriptions. It was written in second person and notes on how to make the things.

Of the 3 books I purchased, he like this the best.

By A Customer
Set in the 60's opens up discussion of equality, yet my main focus was the economics lessons which blend with our 5th grade Enterprise Village curriculum.
