Praise For Stranger and Stranger

“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

“There’s no doubting the lighthearted but darkly hued creativity on display, nearly always sacrificing sense for strangeness. Pure black gold.”—
-ALA Booklist

Reviews of EMILY THE STRANGE: STRANGER AND STRANGER: “A dark delight. Fans of the first book and newcomers alike will thoroughly enjoy the zaniness and clamor for more.”—
-School Library Journal

“The book dresses up teen-identity issues in midnight-black humor and piles on so much persistent weirdness that oddball outsiders, goths in training, and other subversive types will find themselves positively smirking with glee.”—
-ALA Booklist
