Description

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.

Editorial Reviews

"Morgan's Got Game is an engrossing read that would appeal to reluctant readers and beginning readers, but it also has enough complexity to hold up to rereads and family discussions."

CM: Canadian Review of Materials

"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."
