The best-selling sequel to the hilarious "Be a Perfect Person in Just Three Days" . . .
Is is possible? Can an ordinary kid become a multimillionaire in one short week?
Jason Nozzle thought so. What gave him the idea was a book he dug up in the park--a book called "Make Four Million Dollars by Next Thursday!" The author, Dr. K. Pinkerton Silverfish, didn't look like a multimillionaire, but he claimed to be the world's leading authority on getting rich quick.
Rich! The more Jason thought about it, the better it sounded. Jason took the book home and tried to follow its instructions. But that wasn't as easy as it seemed.
Did Jason become four million dollars richer in a matter of days? More important, can you? You'll find the hilarious answers here. Once again, noted author Stephen Manes teams up with noted authority K. Pinkerton Silverfish--and you'll laugh all the way to the bank!
"The self-proclaimed authority on virtually everything, Dr. K. Pinkerton Silverfish, makes his triumphant return!"
" . . . this will appeal to fans of Manes's self-consciously wacky style, his oddly named characters (and foods) and the pell-mell narrative . . . enjoyable for its audience . . ."
