Alex gets a paper route, dreaming of the money he will make and how he will spend it. But it’s more work than he bargained for. Not only does he have to figure out how much money he gets to keep, but he also has to face dangers like the savage Yapper Snapper and the dreaded Four-Headed Gargantuan.

Illustrated comic-book-style with the adventures of Alex’s superhero alter ego, this book shows how Alex learns that his real riches are courage and kindness.
