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.




About the Author

Rob Reger has grown Emily the Strange from an image on a few skateboards and T-shirts to an international fashion brand and publishing phenomenon. He lives in the Bay Area.




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.”—
-Publishers Weekly
