Emmy was a good girl. At least she tried very hard to be good. She did her homework without being told. She ate all her vegetables, even the slimy ones. And she never talked back to her nanny, Miss Barmy, although it was almost impossible to keep quiet—some days. Honestly, Emmy really was a little too good. Which is why she liked to sit by the Rat. The Rat was not good at all. . . .
Lynne Jonell did an excellent job writing this book. It was funny and I really enjoyed the rat who always makes Emmy feel guilty. Hilarious, and extremely scientific. (There were these potions, and mixtures that were magical and all of them came from rats.) I really liked the Endear Mouse and Miss sassy Barmy. I think you'll like it if you read it!
