As a punishment for lying, Kevin has lost his allowance. He doesn't lie now, but he's broke. He's got to find a way to make money. Lots of it, so he can impress Tina Zabinski, the World's Most Beautiful Girl, and ask her on a date. So Kevin gets creative - and his life becomes a financial comedy of errors. Does he really have what it takes to get filthy rich at age fourteen? In Gary Paulsen's hilarious follow-up to Liar, Liar, Kevin's schemes lead him into situations that are sweet, some that are sticky, and some that are downright stinky.

Professional reviews

"As a result of Kevin's creative manipulation of the facts in LIAR, LIAR, his parents have suspended his allowance. Not one to be stopped by minor roadblocks, and in need of a way to improve his financial situation so he can impress the girl of his dreams, he checks some business books out of the library and sets out to become the world's youngest millionaire. Joshua Swanson gives voice to Kevin, projecting all the swagger and bravado the 14-year-old can muster. Swanson's portrayal of this likable, optimistic teen with a big talent for scheming and plotting will have listeners rooting for his success in spite of the hilarious complications he encounters.
