Item description for Muggie Maggie by Beverly Cleary & Tracy Dockray...

Maggie resists learning cursive writing in the third grade, until she discovers that knowing how to read and write cursive promises to open up an entirely new world of knowledge for her.

Publishers Description

No cursive for Maggie

At first, Maggie is just feeling stubborn when she declares she won't learn cursive. What's so 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 decision, 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 of the letters that Mrs. Leeper sends to the office are in cursive, and Maggie thinks they are written about her. But there's only one way to know for sure . . . so what's Maggie going to do?

Reviews - What do customers think about Muggie Maggie?

Muggie Maggie   Jun 14, 2007
Muggie Maggie is the nickname of a girl named Maggie Schultz. She thought she would never learn how to write in handwriting. One day, she actually explained to her dad that she plans to use the computer and type everything up. Her dad just said that she that she wasn't taking cursive seriously. I am not saying what happens next because I recommend this book to everyone. I recommend this book for three reasons. The first reason is because this book is great for people who had or have the same problem as Maggie. The second reason is because this book is short. The third reason is because the book has a theme: never give up.

Muggie Maggie is about a girl named Maggie who does not want to write cursive.Her teacher,mom and dad try to make her do it but she still refuses to do it.But once she haers people all over the school talking about her she makes herself write it.This book makes me feel sad in a way.It makes me sad because she refuses to right cursive and because it took her that long to write it.I reccomend this book because she had someing that she couldn't do and some people have the same thing and I want some kid to know that there are other kids like them even if they aren't real.
ripped off  Nov 10, 2006

a fairly good book  Sep 3, 2005
I read Muggie Maggie in 4th grade and still have my copy. This is quite agood book, and like most books, it has some good parts, and some not so good ones.
Miss Smith's Book Club #2  Nov 17, 2004
We really enjoyed it and it was funny! Our favorite part was when Maggie learns how to do cursive. We think other third graders would enjoy this book; maybe even younger kids, too. We think we will read more Beverly Cleary books now that we have read this one.
