According to PW , Manes's sequel to Be a Perfect Person in Just Three Days! ``contains a similar plot and much of the same kid-pleasing humor. This entertaining escapade will provoke chuckles in even the most reluctant readers.'' Ages 8-12. (Feb.)

Gr 3-5-- Another light romp from the author of Be a Perfect Person in Just Three Days (Clarion, 1982). Jason Nozzle is looking for his lost pocket money when he happens onto a muddy book. Dr. K. Pinkerton Silverfish is at it again, this time attempting to teach his readers how to become exceedingly wealthy. Jason is drawn into the scheme and performs all the duties as assigned, fully expecting to be rolling in bills very soon. His assignments range from wearing 37 dollar signs all over his clothes to carefully planting and fertilizing money. The moral of the story is that there are more important things to worry about than the big bucks you don't have, but Manes and Ulrich certainly prove that it makes for hearty laughs and a quick read. --Janie Schomberg, Leal Elementary School, Urbana, IL
