Morgan doesn't like to skate, and he's determined not to learn. What he really wants to do is go to see Monster Truck-A-Rama with Charlie. Aldeen is not impressed since Morgan already agreed to go to Princesses on Ice with her. Can Morgan keep everyone happy, or is he skating on thin ice?

Morgan is at his loveable best in this wry, humourous, true-to-life story.


Commended - Best Books for Kids & Teens - Canadian Children's Book Centre - 2014 - 2014

"Kids will love the latest addition to the series, written with Ted Staunton's dry wit and humour ... the perfect transition into first novels."

- Sandra O'Brien Canadian Children's Booknews

"This short beginning chapter book hits the mark with its plot, characterization, and vocabulary. The writing style and reading level is consistent, making it an excellent choice for children ready to transition to chapter books ... Morgan and Aldeen's tumultuous relationship is very realistic and their interactions are often hilarious. This series is a great addition to any elementary school library." Rated G: good even great at times!

- Nicole Rowlinson Resource Links

"Ted Staunton's titles in the First Novels series are entertaining and captivating ... ideal for children just beginning to read chapter books. Detailed illustrations also help highlight the story's plot and tone. The Morgan books are a great addition to all school libraries." Highly Recommended 4/4 stars

- CM: Canadian Review of Materials

"Staunton offers a plot with just enough twists and turns to keep the reader engaged and enthused about reading. Despite the limited word and page count, he subtly sketches in the nuances in both Morgan's and Aldeen's characters and their relationship. Bill Slavin's black and white illustrations, full of action and humour, add to the enjoyment."
