Although Levitin throws a monkey wrench into this entertaining fantasy [Jason and the Money Tree] with a confusing discussion of dollar devaluation and the mechanics of the I.R.S., her characters—especially Jason and Mr. Matroni, an understanding shopkeeper—are all believable, and readers will be kept guessing as to the outcome of Jason's unusual predicament.
