Editorial Reviews

Resource Links
"An excellent introduction for children beginning to read longer novels."
CM Magazine
"Staunton's newest addition to the 'Morgan' series is excellent. As usual, the plot in this series is focussed, funny, and believable. This short story is a good tale about friendship and good character. The conflict presented in the story is one to which many readers will be able to relate...The illustrations are very good and add a lot to giving the reader an idea of what the context of the story is."
Children's Literature - Elisabeth Greenberg
Morgan's imagination takes off on a wild ride with his friend Charlie's awesome blue and silver dune racer, and then takes an angry turn when he just misses buying the coveted toy at Charlie's yard sale. Even worse, it goes to the purple sand monster Aldeen! In short action-packed chapters, Morgan discovers that having friends is perhaps more important than having toys and that your friends can always surprise you, even by buying what you most want...in order to give it to you! This zippy book has lots to offer to beginning readers, both boys and girls. The black and white illustrations and the changes in text font and size hint at the tremendous imagination Morgan brings to his play. Reviewer: Elisabeth Greenberg
