The Toothpaste Millionaire by Jean Merrill

Rufus, a sixth-grader, succeeds in business without really trying when he develops and markets his own toothpaste. "Merrill's idealistic construct of how to succeed in business without really trying functions both as a light story and as an explication of free enterprise mechanics." -- Booklist

The Toothpaste Millionaire is a great book about a 12 year old boy named Rufus Mayflower that invents better toothpaste. Then he runs through some obsticals trying to turn his toothpaste into a huge business, such as finding tubes and a machine to fill his tubes with toothpaste. I highly recommend this book to children who understand the business industry as well as the Stock Market.

This is a really terific book. Its so funny and rufus is a genius. Its fiction yet all the steps as complicated and far-fetched as they are all fit together.
