Lawn Boy is a really good chapter book of an unnamed narrator. For his twelfth birthday, “Lawn Boy” gets an old riding mower from his grandmother. While he is tinkering around trying to figure out how to use the machine, a neighbor sees him and hires him on the spot to mow his lawn. Before he knows it, Lawn Boy has more lawns to mow than he has time in a day. Then he meets Arnold, another neighbor who also happens to be a stockbroker. Arnold helps Lawn Boy out by finding employees for him and also investing his money in the stock market. Before Lawn Boy knows it, he has earned thousands of dollars and is now the sole sponsor of a heavyweight prizefighter, Joey Pow!
