Book Description: How do you get kids interested in learning about finance? Give them a comic book! Rich Dad series author Robert Kiyosaki, whose books have sold over 5 million copies, recognized the increasing need for people to begin their journey to financial literacy-and life-long wealth-as early as their preteen years. In Escape from the Rat Race, basic lessons about ``working to learn, not to earn'', buying assets, and understanding a financial statement are revealed in a graphic format through the tale of Timid T. Turtle. When Tim runs out of cash at an amusement park, his savvy friend Red E. Rat shows him how to ``make money work for him''-and tells Robert Kiyosaki's own riveting account of learning the basic principles of lifelong financial success. Illustrated with full-color sequential art in the style of Rich Dad's popular CASHFLOW games and Web site, here is a book that gives kids (and reluctant readers of all ages) the chance to take their first steps toward financial freedom.
