Publisher's Summary

Bonnie's and Debbie's desire to get rich causes them to respond to a sure-thing magazine advertisement. They are soon embarked upon an ambitious summer of selling up and down the river. Not that circumstances end quite in the way they had imagined!

In a surprising flurry of trading, the girls somehow accumulate wealth in the form of unexpected friends, assorted animals, and unforeseen situations, even as their collection of dimes and dollars seem always to be slipping through their hands. Bonnie and Debbie Fairchild occupy center stage in this story of a summer season in the lovely hills of Kentucky of the early 1900s.

Okay. A little slow. Narrarator:not so hot. 🥱😴😵‍💫🤔🤨😉

It was fine. Usually slow. The girls are kind of spoiled! Would recommend for slower minds. DO NOT EXPECT CHILDREN OVER THE AGE OF NINE TO SIT STILL FOR THIS BOOK! It was sweet, unrealistic, and adorable though. My little ones say they liked it, my big kids were falling asleep. 🤔🥱😴😴😴😴😴 Great bedtime story! Definitely preferred to the Stella batts series. Yes! I do recommend for little ears. Yours sincerely, Pig Widget

sweet story

a sweet story for kids of all ages. the fairchild kids have many adventures trying to 'get rich' during summer break but by the first day of school, they end up with a lot of riches that they didnt expect. no bad language of any kind, no other offensive subjects.

Great story and narrator

Even my active boys begged to hear the story! A good narrator makes a big difference too.
