The Dreaded Summons and Other Misplaced Bills, published on May 15, 2017, is the third collection of children’s short stories written by Lorin Morgan-Richards.


The book begins with Tina Teatree, a child that along with her cat are neglected by her parents due to their obsession with gadgets, who learns to become independent but forms a habit of weeding that ultimately leaves her stuck in a mystical area of cacti to cope with her family dilemma. The stories move through other unusual experiences from the title story of a friendship between an introvert and a manatee to the delightfully silly misadventures of the Breakfast Hunter who is trying to retrieve a morning coffee.

"Hidden in these bizarre and odd stories are glimmers of heart and soul, and lessons learned. Morgan-Richards' accompanying illustrations fit the quirky feel of his stories perfectly."
