When Morgan meets his friend Charlie's golden retriever pup, he is a little envious and a little allergic. But he would really like a pet.
Finally Morgan and his parents come home with an albino rat. Morgan doesn't really like Snowdrop, but his pesky classmate Aldeen Hummelthe Godzilla of Grade Threegets along famously with it. She takes over and helps Morgan prepare Snowdrop for the pet show at school. Morgan decides he'll give the rat to Aldeen after the show, but things don't work out exactly as planned...
Morgan's Pet Plot is a funny and touching story that shows how the things we value most are sometimes found where we least expect them.
