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! First, Morgy made his move, then he survived fourth-grade hockey. Now, Broot-taroot!Morgy goes away to camp and comes home with a song of his own. Maggie Lewis’s Morgy’s Musical Summer” is a camp novel to write home about.
