PERFECT FOR BLACK HISTORY MONTH
Jackson Jones wants only one thing for his 10th birthday: a new basketball that doesn't look like a flat frizbee.
What Jackson Jones gets is a garden plot that looks like nothing but a big mess of trouble and weeds..
Things change when Jackson Jones decides that he might actually be able to make money with the garden by growing roses. Maybe he can even buy a new basketball! He even cuts his friends in on the dirty work. But then, his friends abandon him and the neighborhood bully calls him "Bouquet Jones"
This story is filled with character, entrepreneurial tips, math, and friendship, all of which lead to the path of becoming a HAPPY person!
