5-Year-Old Encourages Dad to Hide $100 Bills in Books

Christmas might have come and gone, but there’s still a Secret Santa hanging out in Portland, Oregon. Author, James Zerndt and his 5-year-old son, Jack have been hiding $100 bills in 5 copies of Zerndt’s book, The Cloud Seeders in libraries, grocery stores, and Goodwill stores in Portland. 

Jack told the local news station, “I had an idea from ‘Willy Wonka’ when we watched it that I think everybody should get a golden ticket. That’s not fair if only five people do. So my dad had the idea of going to put the money in his books to help people get money.”

 Two of the books have been found already! Three more to go.
