When Morgan's best friend Charlie tells him a secret he swears he can keep one. But then Morgan is assigned Aldeen Hummel, the Godzilla of Grade 3, as his science partner and the trouble begins. Aldeen makes everyone nervous and Morgan is no exception. She makes Morgan so nervous the secret just slips out. What will Morgan have to do to stop Aldeen from blabbing?

"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."

- Gillian Richardson Canadian Materials

"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."

- Deborah Dowson Canadian Book Review
