Morgan and the Dune Racer
by Ted Staunton
illustrated by Bill Slavin
It's Morgan's birthday and all he wants is Charlie's Thunderbolt Dune Racer. Aldeen snags it first from a yard sale, and Morgan gets mad. Really mad. Morgan's birthday brings him a surprise gift, and a lesson in friendship.
Morgan and the Dune Racer, with its humourous tone and lively portrayals of Morgan and his buddies, will encourage young readers to learn awareness of their emotions and the value of not acting out every feeling that comes along.
