The Lemonade War

The Lemonade War Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

For a full hour, he poured lemonade. The world is a thirsty place, he thought as he nearly emptied his fourth pitcher of the day. And I am the Lemonade King.

Fourth-grader Evan Treski is people-smart. Hes good at talking with people, even grownups. His younger sister, Jessie, on the other hand, is math-smart, but not especially good with people. So when the siblings lemonade stand war begins, there really is no telling who will win—or even if their fight will ever end. Brimming with savvy marketing tips for making money at any business, definitions of business terms, charts, diagrams, and even math problems, this fresh, funny, emotionally charged novel subtly explores how arguments can escalate beyond anyones intent.

Evan Treski  es un estudiante de cuarto grado que sabe tratar con la gente. Puede hablar muy bien con todos, incluso con los adultos. Por otro lado, Jessie , su hermana menor que tambi&eacute;n est&aacute; en cuarto grado, es muy inteligente con las matem&aacute;ticas pero le cuesta entender a las personas. Ella sabe que no demuestra sentimientos. Entonces, cuando comienza la guerra de limonada, no se sabe qui&eacute;n ganar&aacute;, y mucho menos si la guerra terminar&aacute;.

Por primera vez en espa&ntilde;ol presentamos esta combinaci&oacute;n perfecta de humor, matem&aacute;ticas y negocios, escrita por Jacqueline Davies y traducida por las premiadas Alma Flor Ada y F. Isabel Campoy. Es una novela conmovedora que presenta una relaci&oacute;n &uacute;nica entre hermanos y analiza de manera sutil de qu&eacute; manera las discusiones pueden intensificarse m&aacute;s all&aacute; de lo esperado.

Synopsis:

Evan Treski is people-smart. He is good at talking with people, even grownups. His younger sister, Jessie, on the other hand, is math-smart&#8212;but not especially good at understanding people. She knows that feelings are her weakest subject. So when their lemonade war begins, there really is no telling who will win&#8212;and even more important, if their fight will ever end.

Here is a clever blend of humor and math fun. As it captures the one-of-a-kind bond between brother and sister, this poignant novel subtly explores how arguments can escalate beyond anyones intent.

Synopsis:

As the final days of summer heat up, so does a sibling showdown over a high-stakes lemonade stand business. Jessie and Evan Treski compete to see who will make $100 first off of their respective lemonade stands. Full of surprisingly accessible and savvy marketing tips for running a stand (or making money at any business) and with clever mathematical visuals woven in, this sensitively characterized novel subtly explores how war can escalate beyond anyone's intent.
