“Moxy is thrilled that she gets to go to Hollywood to see her dad. But there's a catch: Before she leaves, she must write all her thank- you notes for her Christmas presents. Moxy's hilarious schemes and her brother Mark's photos make this a quick, fun read.”

Here's the second book in the hilarious Moxy Maxwell series, which includes Moxy Maxwell Does Not Love Stuart little and Moxy Maxwell Does Not Love Practicing the Piano. It isn't as though Moxy isn’t grateful for her Christmas presents. She is. She’s just not thrilled that she has to write a thank-you note for each one by tomorrow . . . or she will not be allowed to fly to Hollywood to attend a starstudded Hollywood bash with the father she hasn’t seen in three years. And writing thank-you notes is not something that a world-class Creative Type relishes doing. But it is more than writing thank-you notes that finally prevents Moxy from taking her trip. When her father cancels at the last minute, Moxy is forced to deal with the reality of a situation she doesn’t want to accept, and can’t change. But, not surprisingly, she rises to the occasion brilliantly.
