Book Overview

In this humorous and relatable novel from Newbery Medal-winning author Beverly Cleary, a girl must overcome her rebellious attitude toward learning cursive. This chapter book is an excellent choice to share during homeschooling, in particular for children ages 7 to 9 who are reading independently. It's a fun way to keep your child engaged and as a supplement for activity books for children.

At first, Maggie is just feeling plain stubborn when she declares she won't learn cursive. What's wrong with print, anyway? And she can easily type on a computer, so why would she need to know how to read those squiggly lines? But soon all her classmates are buzzing about Maggie's refusal to learn, especially after her teacher, Mrs. Leeper, says Maggie's cursive is so sloppy that her name looks like Muggie.

With Muggie Maggie ringing in her ears, Maggie absolutely, positively won't back down.until she's appointed class mail messenger. All the letters that Mrs. Leeper sends to the office are in cursive, and Maggie thinks they are written about her. But there's only way to know for what's Maggie going to do?

For generations, Beverly Cleary has captivated readers of all ages with beloved characters such as Ramona Quimby, Henry Huggins, Ribsy, and Ralph S. Mouse. Muggie Maggie follows suit with what School Library Journal calls a likable, funny heroine whom readers will want to know.

   My review
It was really short. Beverly Cleary knows better than to make books this easy. That is why I gave this book only two stars.
   Terrific book my granddaughter loved
My granddaughter read this book in school and loved it so much that she wanted her own copy of the book for her own. This is a really cute story about Maggie discovering her own reasons for wanting to learn cursive after she initially refuses to learn it.
   It is an okay book
The storyline is good, but it did not hold the attention of a seven-year-old. Basically, Maggie does not want to do cursive. My 9-year-old liked it, the only reason I give it four stars is because it is a little short and my 7-year-old did not enjoy it. Maybe other 7-year-olds will love, love, and love this book?
   You should learn cursive!
I liked Maggie's attitude ; she was kind of bossy, but in this situation it was understandable. She liked her dog, Kisser. Aged 7 to 12, good read.
   Good quick story
For our 2nd Grader, Summer Reading is essential. Short enough to be satisfying and challenging enough to keep him sharp in the summer months. Good Story, short but good. He is usually not a Cleary fan in his reading choices, but he liked this book a lot.
   I recommend it
For my son it was easy to read. He was able to read half of the book within an hour.
   Muggie Maggie rating
I think that this book is a really good book ''. I also think that it shows creativity and time that goes into this book. Muggie Maggie is a book that I know I will read a lot of times and enjoy it very much each. I recommend this book to anyone who feels like they can not do something, someone who needs to be encouraged, or maybe someone who does not thinks it is possible. That is why I think that this book is a very good book and deserves to be rated as well.
