Author: Peggy Gifford
Moxy Maxwell’s piano recital is only hours away and she has a long list of things she needs to do before the show. She needs to drink her Green Grass Power Shake for upper body strength, make sure her mother is back from Africa, prepare her costume and try on her make-up, and have a big dress rehearsal. But Moxy forgot one important thing to add to her list—practice the piano!
Practicing is Not a Priority
Moxy’s piano teacher is worried that she won’t stop playing the song when it ends, since Moxy thinks the song is far too short. Moxy’s mother just returned from a sleepless trip to Africa to bring home her spunky twin sister home after an accidental fall. Even though she’s exhausted, it’s up to her to make Moxy practice. But right now, Moxy has more important things to worry about.
When the curtain is drawn, and it’s Moxy’s turn to perform the duet with her sister, Pansy, she wonders whether not practicing was such a good idea after all.
The Bottom Line
If you’re the world’s biggest procrastinator, or you’ve ever had stage fright, then you’ll definitely relate to Moxy. Moxy Maxwell Does Not Love Practicing the Piano is all about overcoming obstacles, facing fears and learning from your mistakes. The Moxy Maxwell series is super funny. It has lots of pictures, compliments of Moxy’s brother Mark.
