The strength of Sonia Levitin's story [in Jason and the Money Tree] lies in the way in which she realistically works out the unforeseen complications which being the owner of a money tree brings and she spices this with sharp-edged humour and characterisation…. The problem eventually resolves itself and Jason of course learns that money can't buy the really important things in life, but nevertheless this is a lively and entertaining story competently told and with some keen observation which readers of nine to thirteen should enjoy.
