Description

All the kids in Morgan's class are itching to go to the zoo--all except Aldeen Hummel, the Godzilla of Grade Three. Aldeen didn't bring her eight dollars, and now she's not allowed to go.

When Morgan sees Aldeen looking in the teacher's desk, he suspects there's going to be trouble. And when she shows up later with money for the trip, he knows it. Their teacher finds eight dollars missing from the trip money, and says nobody gets to go until it's returned. Morgan is sure he knows who took it, but wonders whether he should tell or not. When the money finally turns up Morgan finds he has jumped to conclusions, and that there's more to Aldeen Hummel than meets the eye.

Morgan and the Money is the story of a boy who struggles with the truth, and finds that things aren't always what they seem to be.
