Booklist Reviews 2010 July #1

In Lawn Boy (2007), Paulsen's preteen lawn mower earned a bit of modest cash, then turned it into nearly a half a million dollars with help from a hippie-dippy stockbroker. In this follow-up, Paulsen takes the hilarious story of capitalism run amok a step further, and the lad's deliriously lucrative lawn-mowing enterprise transforms into a massive and unwieldy corporation. Troubled by shady characters lurking about on the shakedown side and the IRS freezing assets on the legal side, he finds he'd rather be fishing than in Forbes. Another focused bit of frivolity from the master of smart, funny stories about boys. Copyright 2010 Booklist Reviews.

Horn Book Guide Reviews 2010 Fall

The twelve-year-old narrator from Lawn Boy has developed an entourage; additionally, the prizefighter he manages has attracted a long-lost cousin who's clearly up to no good. Our hero needs to simplify, a task easier said than done. Paulsen's humorous, satirical, and fast-moving narrative is just the thing for readers looking for a quick fix before heading back to school.

Horn Book Magazine Reviews 2010 #4

With the Summer of Lawn (see Lawn Boy, rev. 7/07) almost over, our still unnamed twelve-year-old narrator has complication upon complication. His best friends are coming home, and he'll have to explain that now he's a "hundred-thousandaire"; the prizefighter he manages has attracted a long-lost cousin who's clearly up to no good; and he's developed an entourage, or "people who manage the people who manage the business." With all these metaphorical weeds in his garden, our hero needs to simplify, a task easier said than done. But, to no one's surprise, simplify he does in the same breezy manner displayed in Lawn Boy. Characters are lightly drawn, with good guys and bad guys clearly delineated. Chapter titles (such as "The Abrupt Termination of Proven Liabilities, with Some Pain" or "The Axiom of Shifting Paradigms") read like stuffy academicism, smartly playing off the humorous, satirical tone of this fast-moving narrative. Paulsen's given his fans a lighthearted end to a lighthearted summer, just the thing for readers looking for a quick fix before heading back to school. Copyright 2010 Horn Book Magazine Reviews.
