At first, Maggie is just being contrary when she tells her parents she doesn't need to learn cursive. Then her teacher, Mrs. Leeper, says Maggie's cursive is so untidy that when she writes her name it looks like "Muggie," which makes her whole class erupt in laughter. Now Maggie really wants nothing to do with those wiggly, squiggly, roller-coaster letters!

But when Mrs. Leeper appoints Maggie class mail messenger, the notes Maggie must carry are all in cursive. Though she's unable to read them, she suspects that some of them are about her. But the only way to know for sure is to learn cursive . . . and Maggie can't go back on her word, can she?

Newbery Medal-winning author Beverly Cleary has once again created an irrepressible heroine in a book filled with the perceptive humor that has earned her generations of fans.

    " Very little to date this fable for third-graders, except the illustrations in the edition I read. However, Maggie's point that between printing and computers we don't need cursive is valid. I've been a teacher and I don't use cursive. Is it still taught? Why? "

    " I re-read Muggie Maggie this week and still enjoyed it very much. It is written for a young age level-- about third grade or so. I think Beverly Cleary has a definite talent of portraying life through the eyes of a child. She adds just the right amount of humor and understanding in her books. Reading Muggie Maggie made me feel like a third-grader all over again. It's definitely a book I want to read with my children someday. "
