Publisher's Summary

Alexander’s two brothers have money in their pockets. All he has are bus tokens. It isn’t fair. He had money last Sunday when his grandparents gave them each a dollar. Now it’s all gone. At first he was saving the money for a walkie-talkie. But saving money is hard. He bought gum with some of the money, and when it stopped tasting good, he had to buy more. Good-bye 15 cents. Then Eddie offered to rent him his snake for an hour, and he couldn’t pass up a chance like that. Betting his brother that he could hold his breath while he counted to 300 wasn’t a good idea, either. He’ll never own that walkie-talkie!

Judith Viorst has a gift for getting inside a little boy’s head and making sense of what goes on there. Paired with Johnny Heller’s acting talent, the result is a good chuckle, laced with real compassion, for the child in everyone.

    I'm a mom. I have drama in my life. I don't want books with the F-bomb, nor graphic violence. I read for fun and to bring my family together. I read for reducing stress levels. We have never had a television in our home and our children are now mid twenties to 19. We listen together and look for belly-wrenching laughter. So what is it like to live without a TV? Awesomely educational and inspirational. Each new book is a marvel.

    "Misery loves company!"

    The company which goes along with Alexander's feelings of buyers remorse are the things Alexander has purchased. Very cute tale.

    I wonder if Dave Ramsey ever reads this book to his family.
