Emmy and the Incredible Shrinking Rat

by Lynne Jonell

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 wouldn’t . . .

Why does the rat talk to Emmy and no one else? Why do Emmy’s schoolmates barely 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.

This delightful and hilarious book garnered four starred reviews - and has an all star cast! Not only did we bring in author Lynne Jonell to narrate, father and daughter team Tate and Tim Green (yes, the same Tim Green who is the bestselling author of FOOTBALL HERO) play Emmy and the Rat. We had a blast recording this one, and it's guaranteed listening fun.

Sample 2Emmy talks to the class rat (3:22, about 4728)

"The rat's voice, with an indignant masculine tone, is particularly enchanting. Emmy's voice is that of a little girl who is confused, but sweet without ever being bratty. It is wonderful to hear all the different voices as they bring the characters to life. Listeners will be engaged throughout."
    — SoundCommentary June 1, 2010
"Jonell narrates with an understated curiosity and humor that allow this quirky tale to shine . . . sure to engage the whole family."

Praise for the print version of Emmy and the Incredible Shrinking Rat:
"Emmy frees the Rat, triggering a landslide of fantastical events featuring the conniving Miss Barmy, cunning Professor Vole and The Antique Rat, his mysterious shop filled with rare rodents. As a transformed Emmy and some new four-legged friends try to outwit Miss Barmy and outrun Professor Vole, the irascible Rat turns the tide."
    — Kirkus   Starred Review
"Emmy’s world has turned upside down. Since her family inherited a fortune, her parents have become obsessed with status and money, her teachers and fellow students ignore her, and her welfare has been left in the hands of her cold-hearted nanny, Miss Barmy. Now, she can hear the class pet, a rat, talking. What’s going on? Jonell takes readers on a merry, sometimes scary romp, as Emmy enters the Antique Rat store and learns about a world of rodents with eclectic powers, which are being used by Miss Barmy to get control of Emmy’s family and their fortune."
    — Booklist   Starred Review
"A mystery is cleverly woven into this fun and, at times, hilarious caper, and children are likely to find themselves laughing out loud during some parts. A medley of endearing characters adds to an already delightful read. "
    — School Library Journal   Starred Review
"Jonell's (the Christopher and Robbie picture books) first novel is a lustrous affair, a droll fantasy with an old-fashioned sweep and a positively cinematic cast."
    — Publisher's Weekly   Starred Review
