In Emmy and the Incredible Shrinking Rat, Emmy longs for the way things used to be, before her parents became rich. Like when her parents actually liked to spend time with her. Like when her parents actually cared about her. Now, Mom and Dad almost act as if they are under some sort of mean, ignore-our-daughter kind of spell. Turns out, they ARE! Watch out for the evil nanny and the despicable potions she concocts from magical rodents. It’s up to Emmy to save the day — can she do it? Try this book, especially if you like fantasy adventure and a plucky heroine.
