Morgan on Ice by Ted Staunton is geared towards ages 6-9 years--a perfect beginning chapter book for those early readers. The story will appeal to both boys and girls. Morgan has been invited to attend Princesses on Ice with his friend, Aldeen. However, when Morgan's friend, Charlie invites him to Monster Truck-A-Rama which is on the same day. Morgan tries his hardest to figure out a plan to go to Monster Truck-A-Rama, and he comes to lots of kinks in his plans.
I thought this was cute, and I enjoyed seeing Morgan try to get out of going to Princesses on Ice. I'm glad that Morgan's mother insisted that he could not change plans that he had already committed to because he could hurt Aldeen's feelings. Luckily for Morgan, it all turns out well in the end. This is surely a book that will have your young readers chuckling.
