The boy in the story wants to be a paperboy, but he is told he's too young. He ingratiates himself with the other paperboys and helps them fold papers. One boy asks him to fill in one day and he is eager to do the job. His school has a paper drive going on and he gets the idea to put a brief advertisement in the rolled up papers. This works great and he has a huge job collecting all the papers and magazines his neighborhood has for him. But he sticks with it and gets the job done.
Throughout the story he takes on jobs which test his ability to complete. But he doesn't give up and works to find more efficient ways of accomplishing it. Pretty admirable kid with guts and determination. A well told story. My 8 year old liked it even tho it isn't high adventure or danger or anything exotic. It's just a nice kid living his life and I imagine he will grow into a successful man.
