How much do I love this book?

SOOOO much!

I absolutely adore Moxy Maxwell Does Not Love Stuart Little by Peggy Gifford.

Love it.

Love it.

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.
