Ok. This book. It's amazing the power a book or story can have on a child sometimes. I swear I was so inspired after reading this one that I wanted to do an intense cleaning of my room and sell as many things as I could to make lots of money like Abby had done. I was so motivated! It was awesome! And we DID have a yard sale some time after, I still remember it, but I didn't make much out of it. ;)

Anyways, Have Wheels, Will Travel is one of my favourite Abby books, and if you want to motivate yo

This one in the Abby Hayes series really captures my heart, since Abby has changed in a way that is positive! Hopefully it will continue all thru her journey as a schoolkid. Abby is ten and still somewhat separate from her genius Wondertwin sisters and her chess whiz younger brother. To make up for what she lacks in self-esteem, she needs a new set of roller blades--and 40 bucks to cover for it. Then her sister breaks an arm playing basketball and....things change! Abby suddenly finds herself sh ...more

i think that this book would be an inspiration to other peoples especially the children, because in this book, shows that Abby, wants to buy a new roller-skates. but she don't even have money to buy one. and then her sister, told her, that she could use her old roller-skates. but abby did not want to use her sister's roller-skates because it is vintage. and the roller-skates is the most popular shoes in their school. so instead, she asked help to her family if they could help abby, sell their vi ...more

This book talks about how Abby Hayes is longing for a roller skate but her parents tell her to make her own money to buy it herself.She thinks of many ways to earn money but every way she tries it doesn't really work. Finally her older sister recommends her to do a garage sale and at first Abby thought that it was a dumb idea but afterwards after she have tried it out she thought that it wont be really much money. Afterwards she finds out that she earned more than 300 dollars! I think that there ...more

In my opinion, Abbey Hayes is a very hardworking fifth-grader. She is tired of using her sisters rollerblades. Since her parents won't buy it for her, she starts to look for ways to make money. She does so many extra things around her house also outside the house she rakes leaves,takes care of pets and so much more. the problem is, is that Abby keeps spending the money. Also, she isn't making much and she is working very hard.

I learned that people should have allowence, because everyone wants money. So they can get allowence, so they can save it for college or anything they want. It's like doing something good, then you get a award.

Good book intended for young readers. Light, entertaining read with an excellent, independent protagonist. In this book of the Abby Hayes series, Abby is attempting to raise enough money to buy new roller-blades, having tired of her sisters' hand me downs.

Recommended to Leighah by: nobody but me
This book i read during per-planning at my mom's school. I liked that she had to work to buy the skates just not ask her parents and they gave her the money. Many parents these days just give their kids money or the thing the kid wants when the kids asks.

Quite a lot of Anne Mazer’s writing education took place while she was unconscious. Her parents wanted desperately to become writers and made themselves get up at 4:00 a.m. Every morning in order to have writing time before their three young children awoke. The first thing Anne heard every day was two big, noisy electric typewriters. The furious sound of typing was her childhood wake-up music. Dur ...more
