Review: Moxy Maxwell Does Not Love Writing Thank You Notes by Peggy Gifford

genre: children's literature
rating: 5/5

Oh Moxy. We loved you in your first book and we were so happy to spend some time with you again. My eight year old daughter and I loved your wise-cracking nature and your crazy ideas. You're certainly a sympathetic character, what with all your mom demands of you (those darn thank you notes...), your silly little sister and kooky Grandma. Your antics had us laughing out loud, especially the copy machine episode. Your brother's photographs added excitment to the story and sometimes your chapter headings, which I'm sure you wrote yourself, made us laugh as much as the chapter itself. Thinking about your parent's divorce sometimes made us think for a while about how that might be hard for you and we loved how your story ended.

I hope we get to read more of you soon
The mom and her girl

I bet The Girl would enjoy these books, too. Thanks for the recommendation!

How do you have the time to read SO many books?

Do you do the TOFW book club? This month the book is on Emma Smith.

I'd never even HEARD of that book club. I just looked it up though, it looks like they read neat things. I don't think I'd do it mostly because I don't think my library would have the books and I'd have to purchase from them :) It's a great idea though!
