Maddie dreams she is having breakfast by the pool, a tropical breeze ruffling the palm trees as her limo warms up in the garage--until her baby sister's screams wake her up, and she goes downstairs to find her brothers fighting over dry toast.
Maddie wants to make her dreams real, and she's missing only one thing: money. When her friend Nicholas suggests a get-rich-quick scheme involving the lottery tickets at his parents' store, Maddie thinks they have a license to print money. But the more tickets they get, the farther behind they fall until they find themselves in real trouble.
Maddie's Millionaire Dreams is the story of a group of kids who learn the value of money--the hard way.

Awards

Winner - Canadian Children's Book Centre Our Choice Selection - 2003

"This story flows and is easy to read aloud. Words such as "insinuating" and "pathetic" are used in ways that will develop vocabulary. The subject matter of this book is light and fun."

- Canadian Review of Materials

"These "First Novels" must be one of the most difficult genres to write. To fit all the necessary elements into this 62 page format demands a unique skill. Then the translation from French, with its idiosyncrasies, into English with its quirks makes these stories a marvel. the plots are refreshingly unique and offer early readers a variety as they develop their solo reading confidence."
