1.What is the name of the main character? Why do you think the author chose not to give him a name beyond 'Lawn Boy'?
2.The Lawn Boy started out just trying to save up for an inner tube for his bike – is there anything you had to save up for? Why did you do to earn money?
3.Where does the book take place? Were there any details that made it seem like Eden Prairie, or could this book have taken place anywhere?
4.The Lawn Boy’s Grandfather was a ‘tinkerer’ – nothing ever broke while he was around. Do you know anyone like that? Someone who knows how to fix things?
5.Early on, why didn’t Lawn Boy offer to pay for the family to go to the iMax show? Why doesn’t he want to tell his parents about all the money he’s earning?
6.Why did Lawn Boy’s grandmother give him a mower for his birthday? Do you think she knew he could make some $ cutting lawns when she gave it to him?
7.If Joey Pow hadn’t been there to help, how could have the Lawn Boy handled the situations with Rock?
