summer. Second half. All the Lawn Boy needed was an inner tube for his
old 10-speed bicycle. What he got was a little old lawn mower that used
to belong to his grandfather. Remember how it helped him to get rich
in one month?
Lawn Boy Returns, the story picks up where it left off when Arnold,
his stock market investment guy, decides to expand the business, adding
administrative staff to help expand its reach. Will Pasqual be able
to handle an expanded lawn crew? Will Joseph Powermilk be able to handle
Bruiser Bulk in the championship fight? Will he be able to handle the
crooks who have ulterior motives with the Lawn Boy in mind? The sudden
growth puts stress on Lawn Boy and the plumped up business. Will they
snap or will they take the new ideas and run?
Paulsen again flexes his masterful writing muscles using the basics
of free enterprise in this mixture of hilarious comedy and business
genius. He creates this relatively short story with an unforgettable
message about how a successful business is created, experiences growning
pains, and ultimately... well... no spoilers here!
