Gary Paulsen’s funny follow-up to Lawn Boy is full of big surprises and big laughs. Lawn Boy says: The summer I was twelve, mowing lawns with Grandpa’s old riding mower turned into big business. With advice from Arnold the stockbroker, I learned all about making money. Six weeks and hundred of thousands of dollars later, life got more complicated. You see, the prizefighter I sponsor, Joey Pow, won a big fight. And a TV interview made me famous. As Arnold says, “Capitalism plus publicity equals monster commerce.” Even my best friends wanted a piece of the action. Meanwhile, some scary guys showed up at Joey’s gym. . . . From the Hardcover edition.

One day I was 12 years old and broke. Then Grandma gave me Grandpa's old riding lawnmower. I set out to mow some lawns. More people wanted me to mow their lawns. And more and more. . . . One client was Arnold the stockbroker, who offered to teach me about "the beauty of capitalism. Supply and Demand. Diversify labor. Distribute the wealth." "Wealth?" I said. "It's groovy, man," said Arnold. If I'd known what was coming, I might have climbed on my mower and putted all the way home to hide in my room. But the lawn business grew and grew. So did my profits, which Arnold invested in many things. And one of them was Joey Pow the prizefighter. That's when my 12th summer got really interesting.

Winner of the Alex Award “Mike Muñoz Is a Holden Caulfield for a New Millennium—a '10th-generation peasant with a Mexican last name, raised by a single mom on an Indian reservation' . . . Evison, as in his previous four novels, has a light touch and humorously guides the reader, this time through the minefield that is working-class America.” --The New York Times Book Review For Mike Muñoz, life has been a whole lot of waiting for something to happen. Not too many years out of high school and still doing menial work—and just fired from his latest gig as a lawn boy on a landscaping crew--he’s smart enough to know that he’s got to be the one to shake things up if he’s ever going to change his life. But how? He’s not qualified for much of anything. He has no particular talents, although he is stellar at handling a lawn mower and wielding clipping shears. But now that career seems to be behind him. So what’s next for Mike Muñoz? In this funny, biting, touching, and ultimately inspiring novel, bestselling author Jonathan Evison takes the reader into the heart and mind of a young man determined to achieve the American dream of happiness and prosperity--who just so happens to find himself along the way.

Salient features of the book : Learning objectives appearing at the beginning of each chapter enlist the topics/concepts that the student are expected to understand after reading the chapter. Opening Case Study sets the stage for the areas to be discussed in the concerned chapter. Case studies are powerful catalysts for thought and discussion as they are based on ‘situation analysis’ teaching technique which allows student to explore problems and dilemmas and provides them opportunities to work in teams, share ideas, and learn that people sometimes see things differently. Encourage your students to consider the forces that converge to make an individual or group act in one way or another, and then evaluate the consequences. Rapid Recapitulation given after the completion of each broad topic helps student understand the concept and its application thoroughly. Assess your Understanding given in the form of MCQs (Multiple choice questions), True & False, Fill in the blanks etc., after the completion of each broad topic helps student test their understanding of the concepts discussed. Story Time strategically placed in the middle of the chapter, these are short interesting stories that allow student to think about the problems discussed in them, develop critical thinking skills and draw some ‘moral lessons’ from them. They also allow students to generate ideas quickly and spontaneously and help them use their imagination and break loose from fixed patterns of response. Closing Case Study is teaching technique that is developed for the purpose of encouraging the student to apply the concepts discussed in the concerned chapter. By engaging in the thinking process that these closing case studies call for, student can improve their own problem solving and decision making skills. Chapter End Summary helps student summarize all the areas discussed in the concerned chapter. Review and Discussion Questions help student assess their understanding of the different topics discussed in the chapter and give them first-hand experience of explaining the concepts and their application in their own words while answering to the long-answer type questions. Brain Ticklers are given with an objective of harnessing thinking out-of-the-box in student. Encourage your students to do it as an individual exercise rather than a team work. Simulation Based Exercise is a role play/management game, which is an informal dramatization in which students act out a suggested situation. It helps young learners simulate real life situations and provides an excellent strategy for practicing skill; experiencing how one might handle a potential situation in real life; increasing empathy for others and their point of view; and increasing insight into their own feelings. Experiential Learning helps student ‘feel’ or ‘experience’ the concepts and theories they learn in the concerned chapter. It provides them opportunities to learn from real life experience and enables them to deepen their understanding of the topic and personalise their connection to it. Answer Key at the end of the book, is a chapter-wise answers to the different types of questions asked.
