Morgan's friend Curtis is throwing the birthday party to end all birthday parties. Everyone in grade three will be there. But when Curtis announces that hes going to show Brain Eater, the scariest movie EVER, Morgan is nervous — he doesnt like scary movies. Can Morgan overcome his fear and still have fun at the party?

With a situation young readers will recognize and enjoy, and a character they can easily identify with, this is a book that will appeal to kids starting to read on their own. The dyslexia-friendly features of the book include easier-to-read typography, page layout, and reduced-contrast paper stock, along with illustrations on every double-page spread that enhance the text.

"Morgan' predicament will be relateable to many young readers, as well as his experiences with peer pressure and teasing. It's reassuring to know that everyone gets scared sometimes, as Morgan himself realizes by the end of the birthday party!"
