Morgan is left out of the loop when everyone begins bringing their Robogamer Z7s to school, linking up online with one another and playing at recess and lunch. Even Aldeen, the Godzilla of Grade Three, has one. But when the other kids start to suspect that Aldeen is faking her gaming, Morgan has to decide whether or not to stand up to the bullies who are teasing her.

With a situation young readers will recognize and enjoy, and a character they can easily identify with, this is a book that will appeal to kids starting to read on their own. The dyslexia-friendly features of the book include easier-to-read typography, page layout, and reduced-contrast paper stock, along with illustrations on every double-page spread that enhance the text.

"Ted Staunton is a wonderful writer for young people... For children learning to read chapter books, and particularly for those than enjoy humorous tales, Morgan's Got Game is definitely a great choice."

- Lisa Case CM: Canadain Review of Materials

"A funny look on how social gaming can pressure kids into following the crowd."

- Cassandra Adams Educator

"As a simple, early reading novel for kids, Morgan's Got Game does the job admirably well. It's relevant to a child's life and interests and makes friendships and doing the right thing the center point of the plot ... Compelling and ultimately very readable for kids. And most importantly in a novel written for young kids, it's just a fun read about something that is a major part of a typical kid's life in today's society."

- Jancee Wright Librarian at ITT Technical Institute, NetGalley Reviewer

"Cute first chapter book with memorable characters and a storyline kids and especially boys would enjoy."

- Tina Falconer Educator at Westminster High School, NetGalley Reviewer

TED STAUNTON has written numerous books for young people, including books featuring Morgan and his group of friends.

BILL SLAVIN is a celebrated illustrator who lives in Millbrook, Ontario. He has illustrated over 40 books for children, including The Cat Came Back.
