Morgan's not a blabbermouth. He does like to talk almost as much as he likes to eat, and he does stretch the truth sometimes, but when his best friend Charlie tells him he likes a girl, his secret's safe with Morgan. Until Aldeen Hummel, the Godzilla of Grade Three, comes along.
Morgan's afraid of Aldeen--adults are afraid of Aldeen--so when she leans on him, Morgan blabs. When she learns he's told her a secret, Aldeen figures she owns Morgan, and lets him know it. Soon, however, they find the secret they share brings them together more than it sets them apart.
Morgan's Secret is a story about the difficulties of keeping secrets, and the rewards of telling the truth.
"Morgan's Secret shines for its humourous characterization. It is the contrast in characterization between wimpy Morgan and Aldeen the bully that keeps readers chuckling through this book. Ted Staunton's portrayal of the Godzilla of Grade Three, in her purple sweatsuit, is great. The dialogue is snappy and generous.Bill Slavin's accompanying sketches are full of motion and emotion."
"Morgan's struggles are comical, but beneath the humour is a tough real-life situation that, happily, turns out well for all involved. This is another fine First Novel from Formac's successful series. Recommended."
