I absolutely adore Moxy Maxwell Does Not Love Stuart Little by Peggy Gifford.
I think it is funny and fresh and adorable. I LOVE the photos. I love Moxy. I love the chapter titles.
I literally laughed out loud, which I rarely never do when reading a book.
AND - it was interesting to note that Gifford addresses the reader, as in "Reader, can I describe the expression on Mrs. Maxwell's face?"
There seemed to be a bit of a TO-DO about the author addressing the reader in The Tale of Despereaux . All those "Dear readers" in there seemed to bother a lot of people (but not me). I haven't read that many reviews of Moxy Maxwell, but I don't recall anyone complaining about the author-addressing-the-reader stuff. (Just wondering out loud here...)
At any rate, it's an interesting way to present the story and it totally worked for me.
Barbara O'Connor does love Moxy Maxwell.
