Here's the first book in the hilarious Moxy Maxwell series, which includes Moxy Maxwell Does Not Love Writing Thank-you Notes and Moxy Maxwell Does Not Love Practicing the Piano. It wasn't as if Moxy hadn't tried to do her summer reading. She and StuartLittle had been inseparable all summer, like best friends. If Stuart Little wasn'tin her backpack, it was in her lap . . . or holding up the coffee table . . . orgetting splashed when Moxy went swimming. But now it's the end of August—the daybefore fourth grade. And if Moxy doesn't read all of Stuart Little immediately, thereare going to be "consequences." It may look like Moxy is doing nothing, but actuallyshe is very busy with a zillion highly crucial things—like cleaning up her room (sortof) and training her dog and taking a much-needed rest in the hammock. Just lookat the pictures her twin brother Mark takes to document it all—they're scatteredthroughout—and you'll see why it's so difficult to make time for a book about a mouse. Of course our heroine does manage to finish her book, falling so in love with itthat she finds herself reading under the covers with a flashlight, late into thenight. From the Hardcover edition.
