Ten-year-old Moxy Maxwell has 13 thank-you notes to finish before she and her twin brother Mark can go visit their father in Hollywood at the end of their Christmas vacation. Part of Moxy's current career plan includes becoming a rich and famous movie star through being "discovered" on this trip, but her procrastination has pushed her mother to threaten to cancel the visit if they aren't done that afternoon. This sequel to Moxy Maxwell Does Not Love Stuart Little (2007) has a bit more depth, touching on the painful situation of children whose father doesn't have time for them, but is just as funny as the first.

She. was going to be an Eastern box turtle. But Moxy could barely hear her, so she took the three pillows off her face and stuck her head under the bed. What did you say? said Moxy. Pansy was wearing black tights and a matching black leotard-the same outfit (as Pansy had explained more than once) turtles wear under their shells.

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 Augustthe day before fourth grade.

Every tween reader’s favorite procrastinator is back . . . in paperback! It isn't as though Moxy isn’t grateful for her Christmas presents. She is. She’s just not thrilled that she has to write a thank-you note for each one by tomorrow . . . or she will not be allowed to fly to Hollywood to attend a starstudded Hollywood bash with the father she hasn’t seen in three years. And writing thank-you notes is not something that a world-class Creative Type relishes doing. But it is more than writing thank-you notes that finally prevents Moxy from taking her trip. When her father cancels at the last minute, Moxy is forced to deal with the reality of a situation she doesn’t want to accept, and can’t change. But, not surprisingly, she rises to the occasion brilliantly.“Resourceful and resilient, Moxy is a pleasure to meet again.”—Kirkus Reviews, Starred

Everyone's favorite procrastinator is back! I think this is the best and funniest book in the series. It took most until easter the year before to write her thank you notes and her mother insists they be written before moxy leaves for her trip to Hollywood. Writing the notes won't due for moxy, so she finds another way, with the whole extended family joining in. Chaos (and of course hilarity) insue. My favorite part is the ceiling painting remark. It doesn't get any less funny. Good for reluctant readers because once you start reading, you'll want to know how it ends, no matter how old you are.

If you hate writing thank-you notes, then you will want to read about Moxy Maxwell. She is under the pressure of a deadline to write her Christmas thank yous, and it's driving her crazy.

Moxy and her twin brother, Mark, are excited about their upcoming trip to Hollywood. They are going to visit their father, who is considered to be a "big mover and shaker" in the Hollywood scene. They haven't seen him in three years, a fact that greatly distresses their mother. That's sort of what has Moxy confused. Her mother wants them to make this important visit, but at the same time, she is insisting that Moxy write all her Christmas thank yous in one day before she leaves.

Thank-you notes seem incredibly pointless to Moxy. Since Granny George lives with them, she sees her every day, but when Moxy tells Granny thank you verbally, her mother says she will still need to write a thank-you note. She says it is the polite thing to do. So Moxy starts the tedious process, but she soon begins to get ideas about ways to make the job easier.

Some of those time-saving ways involve her little sister, Pansy, an off-limits, brand-new copy machine her step-father got for Christmas, a broken La-Z-Boy chair, and a can of gold spray paint. Moxy's creative ideas wreck havoc on the entire household, and surprisingly don't accomplish much in the way of completed thank-you notes.

Readers will have great fun observing Moxy's crazy schemes and shortcuts. Just as most of us feel, her ideas seem like a good idea at the time, but good ideas don't always come with good results. Author Peggy Gifford has captured the frustration of the 9-12 age group. They will easily relate to Moxy's desires and emotions as she struggles to meet the demands of the adult world and satisfy her own wants as well.

Moxy has a problem. She has to write twelve thank you notes or else she won't get to go to Hollywood to see her father. She's been looking forward to this trip but has one little problem. She HATES writing thank you notes. Why can't her mother realize this? When her mother goes to the mall to exchange a dress in time for Moxy's trip, well, let's just Moxy's got some ideas on how to speed this process up.

This book is hilarious!!! I was laughing throughout the story and at Moxy's attics. Also included are photographs of what goes on in Moxy's house. From spray painting HANK YOU on the wall( hey, it wasn't Moxy's fault the paint went over the paper!) to the photo of the macaroni decorated pencil cup holder(who didn't make one of these as a kid?). Funny stuff! I highly recommend this!

Had I still been a little girl when I read this, I know I would have wanted to be just like Moxy, with her inventiveness and confidence. As an adult, I am charmed by her (mis)adventures.
