THE MCVENTURES OF ME, MORGAN MCFACTOID
Hair Today, Gone Tomorrow
His family is about to lose their home, he’s picked on by a bully, and the beautiful girl next door doesn’t know he’s alive. But Morgan (McFactoid) McCracken — who spews random (but fascinating) facts whenever he gets flustered — conquers all three problems with one hair-raising invention. But he’ll have to choose between fame and fortune and his heart’s desire.
With the help of Robin, the beautiful girl who lives next door, as well as an extremely inventive talking parrot, Morgan stumbles upon something potentially much more lucrative—a hair growing formula. And the bald world literally beats a path to his door. Overnight, Morgan becomes an international celebrity, entertaining absurdly lavish offers from cosmetics companies. Suddenly everyone wants to be his friend, including Brad Buckholtz. Everyone except the one person he cares about—Robin. She doesn’t think there is anything wrong with either having whiskers or being bald. In fact, she has always wondered whether people liked her for who she was on the inside, or what she looked like on the outside. She would never respect, and she will definitely not support, someone who sells his soul to superficiality.
After escaping formula snatchers and kidnappers, with the insights gained from some well-timed bird poop and one very smart girl, Morgan makes his choice between fame and fortune and his heart's desire.
