About the Authors
"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
