Last week we announced that Ginger Heller’s The Kid Who Beat Wall Street and Saved Africa, Volume I is our Kids Corner Book of the Week and the sponsor of our student reviews and of thousands of great bargains in the Kids Book category:
The Kid Who Beat Wall Street and Saved Africa, is a story that takes place on six different continents where our hero, Marco, invests in a gold mine stock, corners the market in corn, and makes over $500,000. That’s right, over half a million dollars. By the way, he’s only 12 years old.
However, it is also the story of children in war torn Africa, of marauding gangs of thugs, burning and pillaging. It’s a story of disease, of the lack of food, clean water, and medicine.
Marco, along with his pen-pals from all over the world, learns of the plight of these less fortunate children in Africa. A daring way is devised to come to their rescue
The Kid Who Beat Wall Street…and Saved Africa, tells of courage, of adventure, and of how one boy can begin to save the world, one small step at a time.
