"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" (11/29/2013) "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." Rated G: good even great at times!--Nicole Rowlinson"Resource Links" (01/12/2013)
