My favorite piece of writing is The Oogly Oogly Beast.It's about a monster who's obsessed with cleanliness. In Claudia, Live from WSTO!, Mallory wrote that story and read it to her brothers and sisters. I know it's not on the voting poll but I had to tell my favorite piece of writing. It was a very cute story (:

I haven't read Mallory on Strike, so I don't have a say for Caught in the Middle. However, believe it or not, I actually like the Early Years. Yes, it was awful, but funny. And the revised version was a whole lot better.
Rainy Days and Froggy Nights sounds cute, too, though I don't know what it'd be about...
The mice tale in New York, New York sounds cute. I wish there was more of the story than the illustration.
She certainly portrayed herself as a Mary-Sue. Her original version of "The Early Years" wrote her character as someone everyone admired and thought was perfect. I mean, "Jill" originally spoke in rhyme about why she wasn't more like "Valery". And she wasn't the only one who did that. Granted, "Mallory Pike: #1 Fan" portrayed Mallory as a jerk, too naive, insulting and stubborn". Stories aren't true? Oh, whoever wrote them is a liar! Her play is insulting? That's only because she won't write lies like some authors!
Mallory can write good stories, I'm sure. But why does she think authors had to write the truth? What is fiction, then? I mean, it's all fine to draw from your own experience, but there's nothing wrong with writing things differently, too.

Oh, here's one that I don't think has been discussed! Mallory decides in Super Special #15 to stop writing realism and try writing fantasy. Since she's just found out she's a distant relative of Shakespeare, she starts writing about a girl who wakes up one day and discovers that she's switched places with Shakespeare's daughter. I love time travel stories, and that probably would've been fun to read. We get a snippet of Mallory writing when the girl first wakes up in the past, but that's it. She ends up deciding to wait until they're home to continue writing since it's the only time she'll be in France. I really hope she finished it in the book's universe.
I hardly remember the later super specials, but her time travel story does stick in my mind. I LOVE historical fiction (not so much sci-fi or fantasy though) and that sounds like a book I would have enjoyed as a kid. It reminds me of A Connecticut Yankee in King Arthur's Court, which I did like when I read it.
