Review

Praise for WHAT HAPPENED ON FOX STREETAutumn 2010 Kids’ Indie Next ListKirkus Best Books for Children, 2010 *” Mo’s voice is original, though it has tinctures of Scout and Harriet. What happened on Fox Street? Love, belief and caring.” (Kirkus Reviews (starred review))

Praise for WHAT HAPPENED ON FOX STREET*” Mo is a character readers will root for, as her imagination, stubbornness, dislike of surprises, and curiously fierce caution in crossing the street make her seem as intensely real to the reader as her fox is to Mo.” (Horn Book (starred review))

I read the books "What Happened on Fox Street" and "Mo Wren, Lost and Found" by Tricia Springstubb and didn't want to put them down.
These books focus on a girl named Mo Wren facing big changes in her life. She is brave and has to take on huge responsibilities because her mom has died.
I think that the Mo Wren
books are mostly for girls that are ages 8 - and at the oldest 13.

I also think that other kids would enjoy these books because you have to figure out things as the books go on. Problems Mo faces are difficult and made me think about how I would deal with the same problems.

I have some favorite parts in each book. "In What Happened on Fox Street," my favorite part was when Mo got to see her friend Mercedes again and spend the summer with her. In "Mo Wren, Lost and Found," my favorite part was when the family that moved into Mo's old house helped Mo and her sister with the grand opening of their restaurant when their dad had hurt his back very badly.
Mo Wren books are sure to make you think. Overall, I really liked these books and had a lot of fun reading them.

Format: Hardcover
Inside the pages of this book we meet Mo Wren, a young girl who lives on Fox Street with her dad and sister, Dottie. Fox street is the perfect street to live on and Mo never wants to leave. Mo lost her mother to a car accident. Mom has been gone three years when dad decides it is time to start over. He moves the family across the river to East 213th street and there he takes over Corkey's, a deserted restaurant and starts to renovate it and renamed it, Wren House. There is one serious problem, it seems , perhaps, just perhaps, there is a curse attached to this building, and everyone who tries to make a go of a business here fails miserably. Mo is not amused.

At first, Mo is devastated with this change. She misses everything about Fox Street, her kindly neighbors, a young boy who perhaps has a crush on her and her beloved Plum tree in the backyard of their old house. Everything is different now, the school is not the same, the neighborhood has no end and life is upside down in every area. Mo meets a young boy named, Shawn, who in his 'different' ways brings stability and friendship into her life. She also meets the owner of the local Laundry Mat, Carmella. A woman who has her own secrets and problems, yet helps Mo in many areas, some magical, and becomes an answer to many prayers. Adventure and challenges seem to be at every turn, will this family succeed and once again have a home? Will Mo be happy again?

I really enjoyed this read, as a matter of fact I read it in one day. It was delightful, the characters were so well defined that I felt I knew them, and liked them. The author does an excellent job at bringing out the emotions that I feel any young girl would experience going through the challenges and changes her family was.

by Maggie Martin

Since I'm a bit out of the target age range for Mo Wren, Lost and Found by Tricia Springstubb, I was a little skeptical when I picked it up. I didn't expect what a treat it would be to read, and how much I needed to travel down memory lane.

Mo Wren, Lost and Found is the sequel to Springstubb's debut What Happened on Fox Street where Mo and her "wild child" sister Dottie explore their magical cul-de-sac for endless adventure. In Mo Wren, Lost and Found, Mo and Dottie are being uprooted from their fantastic neighborhood and moving to follow their father's dream of opening a family diner. And the new street is 213th Street. What's magical about that?

While Mo moves in and helps her father refurbish the "haunted" Corky's Restaurant into The Wren House, she can't help but reminisce on everything she left behind: her favorite neighbor and almost-grandmother, Da, her crush that she barely admitted even to herself, Pi, and all of the memories she ever had with her mother.

Luckily things aren't dreary forever. Mo meets a rambunctious boy, Shawn, who lifts her spirits and shows her around to his favorite hang outs including the local Laundromat, the Soap Opera. With Shawn's help, a little fun with Dottie's lizard, Handsome, and a rehabilitated bond with her father, Mo figures out what it means to move on and grow no matter where life takes you.

This book is pure fun at every turn, with crazy misadventures due to "the curse" and funny stories with Mo's wild sister. I was never bored, even though this book is geared towards twelve-year-olds. It reminded me how much someone can grow and how to find true friends that will last, lessons that I'm still trying to learn and use now. Springstubb's characters shine brightly with such individual nuances and help to shape Mo in special ways. Mo Wren, Lost and Found took me down memory lane again and again, with a smile each time I took the trip.

This sequel to What Happened on Fox Street follows Mo and her family as they move to an apartment over the previously "cursed" restaurant (The Wren House) that her widowed father hopes to open. Mo, who avoids change, is miserable in the new neighborhood. Her whole life had been spent on Fox Street where she knew and liked everyone. Warm memories of her mom, her best friend, her "crush", her neighborly grandma, and the "Green Kingdom" at the end of the cul-de-sac make her dread her new home. Mo has always been a responsible replacement in the Wren household for her deceased mother, but her father wants Mo to be free to be an eleven year old girl. Unfortunately, Mo's father's business dreams are bigger than his skills as a handy man.

Luckily, Mo has become friends with Carmella and "goofball" Shawn at the "Soap Opera", the local laundromat. High energy Shawn shows her around the neighborhood, and Carmella introduces them to Homer, "who knows how to do some of everything, from plumbing to electrical". With Homer's help and the presence of new and old friends, Mo begins to finally see that even though change is hard...sometimes it turns out just right.

Mo discovers that her father and sister are solid and unchanging parts of her life. She discovers that even far-away friends can stay close. Through Carmella's eyes, she begins to see the best and most interesting aspects of everyone. Carmella passes on her philosophy: "Put some kindness out there, and someday it'll come back to you."

Older elementary and middle school children will enjoy reading about Mo's adventures and her experiences while opening the restaurant.
