Liam takes a stand


by Troy Wilson and Josh Holinaty

"Twins Lister and Lester--identical except for the location of their hair parts--are constantly competing, each striving to out-do the other. Their relentless, ruthless competition means that younger brother, Liam, never wins - and all he wants is just to play with them. When the twins each decide to run a lemonade stand, their one-upsmanship gets absurdly out of hand. Meanwhile, Liam does odd jobs around the neighborhood, working hard, saving his earnings, and waiting for just the right time̥ And when that time comes, he goes into business with his own apple juice stand. Having learned from his brothers what not to do, Liam's simple business model--delicious product, good customer service, nice atmosphere, no gimmicks!--proves so successful that soon his brothers are working for Liam! It turns out that Lister and Lester have a lot to learn from their (mostly) non-competitive younger brother!"--Provided by publisher

by Christian Trimmer and Madeline Valentine
