Moxy's back, and ready (kind of, sort of) for her big piano recital!In this hilarious third installment about everyone's favorite 'tween procrastinator, Moxy Maxwell is set to make her Piano Debut, playing a duet of "Heart and Soul" with her little sister, Pansy. It's too bad she has no time to practice. Between costume fittings, trying on her crown, warming up her voice, and putting on her stage makeup, Moxy can't possibly worry about the actual performance. But soon it's upon her, and Moxy feels something she's only felt once before in her entire life: nervous! She's not sure she can go on. Of course, Moxy is Moxy and she rises to the occasion brilliantly.From the Hardcover edition.
It wasn't as if Moxy Maxwell 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 August--the day before fourth grade. And if Moxy doesn't read all of Stuart Little immediately, there are going to be "consequences."It may look like Moxy is doing nothing, but actually she is very busy with a zillion highly crucial thingsÑlike cleaning up her room (sort of) and training her dog and taking a much-needed rest in the hammock. Just look at the pictures her twin brother Mark takes to document it all--they're scattered throughout--and you'll see why it's so difficult to make time for a book about a mouse.Of course our heroine does manage to finish her book, falling so in love with it that she finds herself reading under the covers with a flashlight, late into the night.From the Hardcover edition.
