Series: Be Brave, Morgan!

Rating: 0 vote(s).

Morgan doesn't like to skate, and he's determined not to learn. What he really wants to do is go to see Monster Truck-A-Rama with Charlie. Aldeen is not impressed since Morgan already agreed to go to Princesses on Ice with her. Can Morgan avoid conflict and keep everyone happy, or is he skating on thin ice?

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.


Winner - CCBC Best Books for Kids & Teens - 2018

"As a first novel, it is a nice story that will engage children with an interest in skating, monster trucks, and realistic fiction."

- CM: Canadian Review of Materials

"This short beginning chapter book hits the mark with its plot, characterization, and vocabulary. The writing style and reading level is consistent, making it an excellent choice for children ready to transition to chapter books ... Morgan and Aldeen's tumultuous relationship is very realistic and their interactions are often hilarious. This series is a great addition to any elementary school library."

- Nicole Rowlinson Resource Links

"Ted Staunton's titles in the First Novels series are entertaining and captivating ... ideal for children just beginning to read chapter books. Detailed illustrations also help highlight the story's plot and tone. The Morgan books are a great addition to all school libraries."

- CM: Canadian Review of Materials

"Kids will love the latest addition to the series, written with Ted Staunton's dry wit and humour ... the perfect transition into first novels."

- Sandra O'Brien Canadian Children's Booknews

"Staunton offers a plot with just enough twists and turns to keep the reader engaged and enthused about reading. Despite the limited word and page count, he subtly sketches in the nuances in both Morgan's and Aldeen's characters and their relationship. Bill Slavin's black and white illustrations, full of action and humour, add to the enjoyment."

- Gillian O'Reilly National Reading Campaign
