Description


Evan Treski es un estudiante de cuarto grado que sabe tratar con la gente. Puede hablar muy bien con todos, incluso con los adultos. Por otro lado, Jessie, su hermana menor que también está en cuarto grado, es muy inteligente con las matemáticas pero le cuesta entender a las personas. Ella sabe que no demuestra sentimientos. Entonces, cuando comienza la guerra de limonada, no se sabe quién ganará, y mucho menos si la guerra terminará.

Por primera vez en español presentamos esta combinación perfecta de humor, matemáticas y negocios, escrita por Jacqueline Davies y traducida por las premiadas Alma Flor Ada y F. Isabel Campoy. Es una novela conmovedora que presenta una relación única entre hermanos y analiza de manera sutil de qué manera las discusiones pueden intensificarse más allá de lo esperado.

For a full hour, he poured lemonade. The world is a thirsty place, he thought as he nearly emptied his fourth pitcher of the day. And I am the Lemonade King.

Fourth-grader Evan Treski is people-smart. He’s good at talking with people, even grownups. His younger sister, Jessie, on the other hand, is math-smart, but not especially good with people. So when the siblings’ lemonade stand war begins, there really is no telling who will win—or even if their fight will ever end. Brimming with savvy marketing tips for making money at any business, definitions of business terms, charts, diagrams, and even math problems, this fresh, funny, emotionally charged novel subtly explores how arguments can escalate beyond anyone’s intent.

Praise For…


“A funny, fresh, and plausible novel with likeable characters, and is suitable for reluctant readers.”
— School Library Journal

"The basics of economics take backseat to Evan and Jessie's realizations about themselves and their relationship. Does a good job of showing the siblings' strengths, flaws, and points of view in this engaging chapter book."
Booklist

"A straightforward plot teaches an important lesson on sibling relationships."
— Washington Times

"This compelling tale about growing up and getting along is appealing and engaging."
