"I'm just saying I hear this story a lot, usually after chili night."
Morgy's Musical Summer by Maggie Lewis and illustrated by Michael Chesworth
About the Book - 3rd book
(Ms. Lewis' first two Morgy titles, MORGY COAST TO COAST, and MORGY MAKES HIS MOVE).
Morgy thinks Outlook Music camp is a long way to go to get good at the trumpet. It's almost in Canada! But Colonel Profundo gave him a "promising beginner" scholarship. His friends, Byron and Clara, are coming, too.
Dad says, "It's summer camp and you'll love it." Dad's right, but he doesn't know the half of it. There's canoeing, swimming, soccer, and wild games of musical chairs. But there's also Damien, oboe prodigy and bully. And Byron and Clara are in band,
while Morgy's stuck in orchestra, playing a solo.
What is Morgy supposed to do if he can barely read music; he misses his dog, Dante, and his cat, Pancake; his best friend is in love with their trumpet teacher; and he sees soldiers in three-cornered hats sneaking through the camp at night?
Keep practicing, of course! Maggie Lewis's Morgy's Musical Summer is a camp novel to write home about.
