From School Library Journal
Grade 2-4-- With the introduction of Maggie Schultz, a feisty and independent third grader, Cleary again gives young readers a real person with whom they can identify and empathize. This deceptively simple story is accessible to primary-grade readers able to read long hand, as some of the text is in script. The plot develops around Maggie's defiant refusal to learn cursive writing, one of the mainstays of the third-grade curriculum. When her mother queries her about how long it might take her to decide to write cursive, Maggie answers, "Maybe forever." All the while she fervently wishes that she had never taken such a stand. The problems Maggie creates for herself at home and at school are handled with deft wit. Her parents are alternately understanding about their daughter's determined desire to be her own person and irritated by her stubbornness and the ensuing requests for school conferences about her uncooperative behavior. How Maggie's savvy teacher accomplishes her goal of getting Maggie to learn cursive without an unpleasant confrontation, or loss of face on either side, is both clever and believable. Everything in this book rings true, and Cleary has created a likable, funny heroine about whom readers will want to know more . Order two copies; you'll need them! --Martha Rosen, Edgewood School, Scarsdale, NY

Muggie Maggie is written by Beverly Cleary. It is about a girl that refuses to learn cursive. First, she hates cursive because she only likes to type on the computer. Then, she is upset because she cannot read cursive. Next, she becomes the message monitor. Find out if she learns to like cursive. We would give Muggie Maggie a 7 ½ out of 10. We liked it because the ending was surprising. We recommend this book to 2nd and 3rd graders because they learn cursive.
