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 computer, so why would she need to know how to read those squiggly lines? But soon all her classmates are buzzing about Maggie's decisions, especially after her teacher, Mrs. Leeper, says Maggie's cursive i 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, Magiie thinks they are written about her. But there's only one way to know for sure... so what's Maggie going to do?
