Morgan has been signed up for floor hockey. He hates it. Aldeen has been signed up for music lessons. She hates them. They devise an elaborate switch of roles so that each can do what they really want. Of course, they get caught, but the effort to not get caught makes this book an entertaining read. Morgan has to use Aldeen's name and quickly informs the music instructor that his name is pronounced Al?Dean, and to call him Dean. Aldeen is too aggressive in floor hockey, and a phone call is made to Morgan's house, with the call resulting in Morgan's getting to play more hockey with his dad. The plot is good, and the story moves along at a good pace!
Ted Staunton has written many books with Morgan and Aldeen. This book continues to exploit the relationship between Morgan, and his friend of inconvenience (nicknamed the Godzilla of Grade Three), Aldeen. Together with his best friend Charlie, Morgan seems to get caught up in all sorts of hilarious mischief.
John Dryden is a teacher-librarian and grade 6 teacher in Duncan, BC.
