We were introduced to this book when doing Eastern Hemisphere Explorer (Core F) with Sonlight.  This is the best economics book I have ever read! It is written in an easy conversational style.  I read this book out loud to my eldest two when they were 11 and 13 and they can still remember it.  They have retained a fairly accurate summary of economics from this book.  If you have teens in your home this is definitely a must read.
 Quoted from Bluestocking Press: In "Whatever Happened to Penny Candy?" Richard Maybury uses historical events from Ancient Rome to explain economic principles. This clearly written book about economics is a remarkably easy and fun explanation of investment cycles, velocity, business cycles, recessions, inflation, the demand for money and more. Essential for every student, businessperson and investor. Recommended by former U.S. Treasury Secretary William Simon. It is also on many recommended reading lists."
