I found this one while roaming the library, and since I had enjoyed it a couple years ago, got it again. It is super cute and doesn't follow a lot of clich├ęs of children's fiction. Emmy and Joe are friends, without anything else to ruin the story. The Rat is hilarious, and really sweet at heart. I would recommend this to anyone 8 and over. Nothing objectionable whatsoever.

Emmy is a girl that hardly anyone takes the time to notice, including her parents who take long trips away from their home. In school, Emmy is almost invisible to everyone except for the class pet, Rat. When Emmy discovers that Rat can talk and frees him from his cage, she sets off a chain of events that leads to the discovery of just how evil her nanny is.

This book was one of my favorites by far but took quite some time to get into the action of the story plot. If you tend to be someone who is seeking high action books, wait the beginning of this one out and you'll find that it was well worth it.

I read this to my girls (5 and 8) and we all LOVED it. So fun to read out loud! Can't wait to read the second one.
