Description

It's Fall Fair time again and Morgan is sure his homegrown pumpkin will take first prize. But when Aldeen drops his pumpkin and it smashes, he gets angry and challenges her to a bumper car war. Aldeen has other ideas and counters with a dare to ride the Asteroid Belt, a big-kid rollercoaster. Can Morgan save face and be brave enough to try?

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.
