Emily the Strange: 13 years old. Able to leap tall buildings, probably, if she felt like it. More likely to be napping with her four black cats; or cobbling together a particle accelerator out of lint, lentils, and safety pins; or rocking out on drums/ guitar/saxophone/zither; or painting a swirling feral sewer mural; or forcing someone to say "swirling feral sewer mural" 13 times fast . . . and pointing and laughing.



Praise For Emily the Strange

“There’s no doubting the lighthearted but darkly hued creativity on display. Pure black gold.”—
-ALA Booklist

“A highly enjoyable read that will appeal to both readers new to the series and Emily fans alike.”—
-School Library Journal

“[Emily’s] sarcastic, nerdy individualism—with a hint of buried sweetness—will make readers want to spend more time with her.”—
