Max the Businessmanby Trina Wiebe, David Okum
The Max-a-Million series follows the adventures of Maxamillian J. Wigglesworth III, who is determine to become millionaire by age twelve. But whether he's a magician in search of a money-making trick, a hero looking for someone to rescue, or a movie director set to make the next box office hit, his get-rich-quick schemes often end in spectacular disaster! Max and his best friend Sid might not manage to make millions, but they always find lots of action, and discover that money isn't the greatest reward after all.
In Max the Business Man, the highly-anticipated fourth installment of the Max-a-Million series, Max is still trying to make his first million. Is he finally ready to hang up his get-rich-quick schemes and get a regular job? No way! Convinced it would be fruitless to work for someone else when all the profits go to the head honcho, Max decides to go business for himself. While helping his mother in the garden, a business plan starts to germinate. The Mayor is calling for a Main Street facelift, and with Sid's help and his mother's marigolds, Max could corner the sidewalk flower box industry! He has no idea what kind of competitive world he's entered, until at a local Green Thumbs meeting, someone murders "Victor"—a prize-winning orchid. In a flash, Max goes from gardener to detective, as he tries to catch the culprit (and hopefully a big reward!).
