Emmy was a good girl - too good, perhaps. The rat, whose cage sat on the counter next to Emmy's desk, was not so good. On the other hand, he was the only one in Emmy's class who would talk to her. The rest of the kids barely knew she existed. Even her teacher didn't seem to know she was there! Only her nanny, the lovely-but-sinister Miss Barmy, really pays her much attention. And Emmy would rather she didn't....

Why does the rat talk to Emmy and no one else? Why do Emmy's schoolmates hardly notice she exists? And what is Miss Barmy really after? Teasing out the answers to these questions will plunge Emmy into a wild adventure where everything she holds dear - including her parents' lives! - is at risk.

Endlessly inventive, uproariously funny, and utterly endearing, Lynne Jonell's sensational debut novel will delight the entire family.

    " Very cute story! Adventure involving kids, rodents and an evil nanny, I enjoyed it very much! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Leslie Diane | 2/3/2014

    " Super, super, super cute! Great for all ages (as long as you're ready to use your imagination!) Brought me back to my childhood : ) "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Emma | 2/2/2014

    " I was about ten when I first read this book, and I loved it when I was ten. Then I moved and couldn't find the book in our local library, then I moved back and re-read the book when I was twelve. Obviously I didn't think it was that great. So i think it is an awesome book for younger children but will get kind of boring as you get older. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Bonnie-sue | 1/27/2014

    " This book was quite enjoyable and while the ending is slightly predictable, it has a nice twist that i didn't expect. I won't ruin it, but it's a good read. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Judi Paradis | 1/24/2014

    " Wonderful book for grades 4 and up. Emmy and her parents are at the mercy of the evil Miss Barmy who is using a slew of magical rodents to keep Emmy's parents at bay and to keep others from seeing Emmy. Through a wonderful series of adventures, Emmy figures out how to use the rodents to her advantage. Great fun. "

    " I really liked this book! It was very exciting, and I couldn't put it down. But the only bad thing about it, is that Ratson Rat's character at the beginning, was different from the end. I'm not sure if that was ment to be. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Joan | 1/31/2012

    " I have to keep in mind that I was not the intended audience for this book. I'll be anxious to see how 3-5 grade readers feel about it. It was very imaginative, but just not my cup of tea. "
