What's Rufus the Writer About

Publisher Summary

Rather than a lemonade stand, Rufus sets up a story stand one summer and makes a series of trades with his friends–a story for a shell, for a kitten, for a surprise, and one more as a special birthday gift for his sister.

Trusted Reviews & Ratings

The Book Snob Mom
Mom of boys. Lover of Harry Potter, Jane Austen and believes one can never own too many children's books!
4.75 / 7.0
The Goodfather
Favorite pastime? Reading with my kids. Just finished Nana Cracks the Case!
5.0 / 7.0

This a unique tale of storytelling, friendship, and entrepreneurship. Young business minded readers will enjoy seeing Rufus’ clever version of the traditional lemonade stand. I love that the story shows young readers that they can innovate using their unique interests and abilities rather than feel obligated to do the same thing that has always been done.
