Greg Kenton has two obsessions -- making money and his long-standing competition with his annoying neighbor, Maura Shaw. So when Greg discovers that Maura is cutting into his booming Chunky Comics business with her own original illustrated minibooks, he's ready to declare war. The problem is, Greg has to admit that Maura's books are good, and soon the longtime enemies become unlikely business partners. But their budding partnership is threatened when the principal bans the sale of their comics in school. Suddenly, the two former rivals find themselves united against an adversary tougher than they ever were to each other. Will their enterprise -- and their friendship -- prevail? ★本書中譯本《午餐錢大計畫》由遠流出版 作者簡介 安德魯.克萊門斯(Andrew Clements) 美國備受歡迎與敬重的暢銷作家，著作超過五十本。克萊門斯為兒童創作圖畫書，也為青少年寫小說。他最著名的作品是也是他的第一本小說《我們叫它粉靈豆─Frindle》，一出版即暢銷，長踞《紐約時報》暢銷書排行榜，在美國已銷售超過兩百萬冊，獲獎數十次，並售出德、法、義、英、日、韓......等十餘國版權。 克萊門斯從中學時代即開始寫詩，他曾有一首詩被英文老師評為「太有趣了，這可以出版！」，開啟了他後來的作家之路。他還曾當過中學教師、為歌手創作歌曲，也曾在出版社擔任主編工作。目前則是專職作家，住在美國麻薩諸塞州。 Andrew Clements is the author of the enormously popular Frindle.
