Title:  The Toothpaste Millionaire
Author:  Jean Merrill
Reviewer:  John B. '11
This story is about a guy named Rufus. He starts to make a toothpaste business because he knows he will use math a lot in the business and Rufus is always good at math! He starts the business and sells the toothpaste at a very low price and before you know it, he's a millionaire. Everybody is buying Rufus' toothpaste because people realize the price of toothpaste in stores costs so much more then Rufus' toothpaste. He becomes very rich and famous but at the end of the book, he gives up and decides to retire and give the job over to his working buddy, Hector.

If I give this book a rating from 1 to 10, I would probably give it a 4 or 5. I really feel that it was not exciting at all. It was just boring!

 I would not recommend this book to those who like exciting books. If you don't like exciting books and you like books where there is not much action then this would be the book for you!
