Moxy Maxwell Does Not Love Writing Thank-you Notes

Moxy Maxwell Does Not Love Writing Thank-you Notes is the second book in the Moxy Maxwell series.  Moxy is a funny kid, always scheming to get out of her “boring” chores and work, like the summer reading she has to do in the first book.  In her latest adventure, she has promised her mother that her Christmas thank-you cards will be completed on the day after Christmas.  Of course, she made this promise at Easter (when last year’s Christmas thank-yous were finished.  You see the problem?).  What she didn’t know then was that she and her twin brother would be visiting their father, a big mover and shaker, in Hollywood two days after Christmas!  Obviously, Moxy has much better things to do than write thank-you cards- packing, planning what to wear to the big New Year’s Eve bash, and figuring out how to get “discovered” while in Hollywood are just a few of those things.

All hope seems lost.  Until Moxy has a  genius idea; she will write one generic thank-you letter and photocopy it on her stepfather’s brand new copier!  Ok, so technically no one is allowed to touch her stepfather’s new copier, but Moxy is sure no one will mind once she explains her genius idea.

As you can imagine, nothing works out as planned for Moxy.  But you can’t help but laugh at her antics and the situations she gets into!  This is a great book for those who loved the first Moxy story and for reluctant intermediate readers.
