Audible Editor Reviews

With help from an excellent cast of actors, Lynne Jonell performs her own story about good girl Emmy and a not-so-good rat. No one seems to notice Emmy - not her parents, her schoolmates, or even her teacher - but one day, she begins to hear the class pet rat speaking to her and discovers a dastardly plot involving super-powered rats, an evil professor, and her own nanny. Jonell's deliberate, spare narration melds seamlessly with the character's voices: Emmy's voice is appropriately childish and perceptive at the same time, and her loneliness is poignantly evoked. Listeners will also enjoy the rats' characterizations, with their voices containing traces of amusing squeaks and squeals.

Publisher's Summary

Emmy was a good girl—too good, perhaps. The rat, whose cage sat on the counter next to Emmy’s desk, was not so good. On the other hand, he was the only one in Emmy’s class who would talk to her. The rest of the kids barely knew she existed. Even her teacher didn’t seem to know she was there! Only her nanny, the lovely-but-sinister Miss Barmy, really pays her much attention. And Emmy would rather she didn’t....

Why does the rat talk to Emmy and no one else? Why do Emmy’s schoolmates hardly notice she exists? And what is Miss Barmy really after? Teasing out the answers to these questions will plunge Emmy into a wild adventure where everything she holds dear—including her parents’ lives!—is at risk.

Endlessly inventive, uproariously funny, and utterly endearing, Lynne Jonell’s sensational debut novel will delight the entire family.
