Main characters: Moxie, Mrs. Maxwell, Ajax, Mudd, Sam, Mark.

Moxie needs to read Stuart Little over the summer. It is the last day of summer vacation and she has all kinds of excuses not to get the book read.

Moxy Maxwell is a soon-to-be fourth grader that has put off her summer reading of "Stuart Little." Despite loving to read, Moxy had more important things to do over the summer, like train for her water-ballet. In her last attempt to finish the book before the summer ends, Moxy finds herself facing various consequences for procrastinating. A smart, quick witted read told from the perspective of Moxy in a photo-like journal.

Good for reluctant readers, as they could relate to Moxy, as well as the photo-like journal and short chapters.

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0375839151, Hardcover)

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.
