In these two stories, 9-year-old Moxie Maxwell discovers that putting off onerous tasks has—in her mother's words—“consequences." In the first story, Moxy has avoided her required reading all summer, and now she must complete STUART LITTLE if she wants to participate in the Great Daisy Routine, a synchronized swimming performance. In the second, she puts off writing her thank-you notes (to be completed before taking an exciting trip) with some creative attempts at time-saving shortcuts. The youthful-voiced Clea Lewis hits just the right notes. She delivers fully imagined portrayals of exuberant, irreverent Moxy as well as Moxy's irritatingly organized twin brother and her beleaguered mother. Reluctant children (and their nagging parents) will enjoy Moxy's struggles and triumphs. J.C.G. © AudioFile 2008, Portland, Maine [Published: OCTOBER 2008]
