A Dog Called Money is a pioneer act that was long overdue: It pulls down the barricades of prejudice. In doing so, it allows us to see more clearly. Entrepreneurship is not child labour: It is a game, brim-full of excitement. It is anything but monotonous; it can both surprise us and release our creative energies. This is the first book on the subject of money written for children. It doesn’t lecture; it gives children a chance to venture into the world of a grown-up activity that was previously off-limits; dealing with money. The touching story about Money, the talking Labrador, shares tried-and-tested secrets about money that are easily understandable by children and adults alike.
Kira, a 12-year-old girl, lives in poverty, and her parents constantly argue about their shortage of money. One day, Kira finds an injured Labrador and takes him home. But whoever thought that a regular dog would be a financial genius? Through the friendship that Kira and Money build up, Kira realizes that you really can make your dreams come true.
