Moxy Maxwell Does Not Love Stuart Little by Peggy Gifford

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 Stuart Little had been inseparable all summer, like best friends. If Stuart Little wasn't in her backpack, it was in her lap . . . or holding up the coffee table . . . or getting splashed when Moxy went swimming. But now it's the end of August—the day before fourth grade. And if Moxy doesn't read all of Stuart Little immediately, there are going to be "consequences."

It may look like Moxy is doing nothing, but actually she is very busy with a zillion highly crucial things—like cleaning up her room (sort of) and training her dog and taking a much-needed rest in the hammock. Just look at the pictures her twin brother Mark takes to document it all—they're scattered throughout—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 it that she finds herself reading under the covers with a flashlight, late into the night.

From the Hardcover edition.

About the Author

Peggy Gifford's original plan was to become a famous (but really nice) actress. But after touring Ohio as Winnie-the-Pooh, she decided to become a writer instead. She holds an MFA from the Iowa Writer's Workshop, and her work has appeared in the Iowa Review, the Antioch Review, and women's magazines like Redbook. This is her first novel for children. She lives in New York, New York and Myrtle Beach, South Carolina.


Valorie Fisher is the author-illustrator of How High Can a Dinosaur Count?, which recevied two starred reviews, among other titles. Her first two picture books, My Big Brother and My Big Sister—both Oppenheim Toy Portfolio Platinum Award winners—were, like Moxy Maxwell, illustrated with photographs. She lives in Cornwall, Connecticut.

Moxy Maxwell loves to read, dont get her wrong. She'll stay up to midnight reading her favorite books. But what is it about a cute little white mouse that makes her put off reading it all summer long? Maybe it's just becuase she's too distracted, and every time she starts reading, something else happens to demand her time... An eye catching cover and title are only the starts of this fabulous book. By a first time author, it's charming, witty, and just all around cozy and lovable. Moxy is a quirky character, and the black and white pictures that illustrate...are breathtakingly amazing! Their rawness and old fashioned-ness (is that a word? Well, we'll make it one for the sake of this book) made me squeal. I loved them. Content here- you couldn't ask for less. Not one trace of sex, violence, language, or anything else to speak of. The story was short, but it didn't take away from the story. I loved it. Love, love, love. Can't wait to read the sequels and see how they measure up. I love Moxy! Read this and see if you do too :) **Thanks for reading! Please mark this review as helpful and check out my other reviews! God bless!**

Moxy does not want to read Stuart Little. So much so that she has tried to destroy her copy of the book. Her brother takes pictures that really enhance the plot, and it's altogether laugh out loud. Great summer read.

Who knew someone would write a book about not liking Stuart Little? It's a very short book, but it is really funny. It teaches a good lesson, don't judge a book by its cover!
