Billy loves to draw. He draws on books and on his homework and even on his math testsâhe might not get the answer right, but doesnât it look swell sitting in a boat at sea? His teacher doesnât think so, and neither does the principal. But the librarian has an idea that just might help Billy better direct his illustrative energies: a book-making contest!

This edition also contains Study Guide to Accompany Money Banking and the Economy
