This book depicts the fiasco that ensues as children who, though there is much that they wish to do and have, have little money set out to earn it on their own. Amidst the events that unfold chaotically without leaving even a moment for readers to become bored, the volume reflects the acute problematics that there are things more valuable than money, thus leaving a deep aftertaste.
Cho-won wants to eat delicious chicken, Sang-mi wants to wear a dress with white lace, and Yong-su wants to put on dashing soccer shoes. However, these 5th graders do not have much money. The three friends therefore decide to make money with their abilities. But they are accused of theft when they try to gather and sell empty bottles and are not paid their daily wages properly even though they have posted hundreds of flyers. Fortunately, the youngsters grab a chance to obtain free tickets to a famous band’s concert and to sell them to other friends. The three children’s haphazard efforts to earn money unfold in a gripping manner.
