When Moxie, a weather beaten dog with a bullet hole in his ear, mysteriously arrives on a farm where the animals are cowed by a rude and nasty bull, the scene is set for a confrontation between street smart Moxie and the bully. Moxie teaches the rest of the farmyard animals to stand their ground, stick to their guns and take the bull by the horns. Featuring a cast of animal characters and illustrated by Annie West, "Moxie the Underdog" tells a simple story of tenacity.
