Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The Nelly Longhair doll is on sale at Murphy's Toys for ten dollars. But Isabel has only fifty cents. Isabel decides to start a car wash business; she's sure she can make money. But at the hardware store she learns that her supplies will cost five dollars! If five of her friends will invest one dollar each, she'll have enough. Will Isabel be able to pay them back and have enough left over for the Nelly doll?


Isabel wants a doll, but she can't afford it, so she borrows money from her friends, buys supplies, and has a carwash. She uses the profits to pay her friends back and buy her doll.
