As I make my comments here, I am beginning to wonder if I have anything nice to say about anything.

I liked this one better than the first of the Moxy books, but I'm not sold that it works so well for kids as it does for adult sensibilities.

I liked the fact that several people noticed Ajax's office's ceiling was in need of paintl. I had a difficult time believing no one at least unplugged the copier.

Oh, and I also think Moxy is too smart to use the spray paint the way she did.
