{Synopsis} – After inventing a bestselling excuse-generating app, twelve-year-old Benjamin “Benji” Franklin became the world's youngest and, well, only ZILLIONAIRE. Unlike other fat cats, this tiny tycoon uses his wealth for the greater good instead of selfish gain — because it's not all about the Benjamin!

{My thoughts} – “It’s not that I’m smart, it’s just that I stay with problems longer.” – Albert Einstein

This book is amazing. I honestly cannot wait to buy this one for my 8 year-old son.

This book is written in parts. It’s about this boy Named Benji that is more or less too smart for his own good. He is in a tech class in his 6th grade year and they have to make an app that will be fun and appealing to others his age. He decides to make an app that will help create, explain and in his thought process understand why children make excuses. His app is nothing short of brilliance and he becomes a zillionaire almost over night.

He is then contacted by a scientist that needs his help catching some endangered species. He comes up with a plan and they carry it out. Mission does become accomplished. The way this child’s brain works is nothing short of amazing. His father is also equally as smart as he is.

A little while after that he is contacted by another scientist that needs his help in saving the Earth from an asteroid. You’ll have to read the book to find out what happens.

This is a fast paced book and I can see any child falling in love with Benji.

Final Conclusion: 5 Star Rating.
