Description
Emmy Addison is an ordinary girl--almost. If you don't count the fact that her parents are rich (very), her best friend is a boy (and a soccer star), and she can talk to rodents (and they talk back), she's very ordinary indeed. But she hasn't been that way for long . . .

It was only a few weeks ago that Emmy and her friends Ratty and Joe got rid of the evil Miss Barmy, the nanny who had nearly ruined Emmy's life--and the lives of five other girls who went missing. Miss Barmy is now a rat. How much harm can she do?




About the Author
Lynne Jonell has a husband, two sons in college, and a slightly battered sailboat. While she does not particularly care for rodents and hasn t managed to shrink for a good ten years, she still holds out hope for future change. She teaches writing at the Loft Literary Center and lives in a house on a hill in Plymouth, Minnesota.

Jonathan Bean has worked for numerous publishers and his illustration and writing have received widespread recognition. He has illustrated six picture books and just won his second Boston Globe-Horn Book Award for his latest book, Building Our House. He lives in Harrisburg, PA. www.jonathanbean.com
