The Tuesday Review: "Moxy Maxwell Does Not Love Writing Thank-you Notes" by Peggy Gifford

"Moxy Maxwell Does not Love Writing Thank-You Notes" by: Peggy Gifford

There are 13 things that Moxy Maxwell must do before her trip to see her father in Los Angeles. Twelve of those 13 things are write thank you notes for all her Christmas presents. Like the title implies, Moxy doesn't enjoy this task! This short chapter book (with possibly the best cover ever!) is fresh, hysterical, and full of whimsical photos that better explain the world of Moxy Maxwell. Each chapter packs a powerful punch of Moxy's well...Moxy! This clever book would be a great read for girls grade 4-6 who can identify with Moxy's woes that are as big as seeing her dad for the first time in a few years, to as small as tackling 12 thank you notes.
