The Toothpaste Millionaire

Written by Jean Merrill

Likable, clever, and inventive sixth-graders Rufus Mayflower and Kate Mackinstrey develop and sell toothpaste to become millionaires in just one year! This fun, breezy story includes many real-life mathematical problems which the characters must solve to succeed in their budding business.

Is it possible for an ordinary (well, maybe not so ordinary) sixth-grade boy to become a millionaire by making and marketing his own brand of toothpaste? Especially when the toothpaste is initially made in a friend’s kitchen and packaged in recycled baby food jars? Rufus Mayflower’s business success is chronicled by his friend Kate who, (along with their math teacher, classmates, a tell-it-like-it-is newscaster, a savings and loan officer, and an unemployed mechanic) become shareholders in a toothpaste company that is about to put all the national brands out of business.
