I read every night with my son for twenty minutes. We read the first five chapters and my son begged me to finish the rest of the story. The story is funny and easy to follow. I had to explain some of the expressions used in the story; for example, "Get lost Bozo". He asked me what that meant and who was Bozo. We were able to discuss why Morgan's actions were annoying to others when Morgan thought he was being funny and lovable. The ending was a surprise. We are looking forward to reading another of his books to see if they are just as funny.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.
