Morgan Makes a Deal

by Ted Staunton

Having a paper route is a lot more work than Morgan cares to take on. His parents helped him into it so he would have some money for a video game that he wants.
Having a paper route is a lot more work than Morgan cares to take on. His parents helped him into it so he would have some money for a video game that he wants. Things get easier when he persuades Charlie to do some of the delivery, in exchange for copying Morgan's math homework. Aldeen, who has been coming along on the route, wants in on the same deal. Things go smoothly until time comes for a math test. Morgan panics. He can't help them in the test. Then his mother insists that he share the earnings with his two helpers. He wants to get out of the deal but when he gets a lower mark on the math test than his friends, the tables are turned.
In this delightful new addition to the well-loved Morgan series, young readers will get a look at the fun and the trials of having a paper route.
