Synopsis

The Barker twins, Morgan and Moffat, are so excited. They are about to start school for the first time. Moffie knows all the colors (and gets a gold star) and Morgie makes a friend. Moffie knows all the numbers (and gets another gold star). But she needs a friend, and with a little help from Morgie, she makes one. Then Morgie shows he knows the names of the dinosaurs (and gets a gold star). Now they both have gold stars and friends. Whether they are learning new things, making new friends or just having fun, Morgie and Moffie-the irresistible Barker twins-both LOVE school! Based on the personalities of his own Welsh terriers, Tomie dePaola has created two new characters everyone will love!
