Emmy and the Incredible Shrinking Rat by Lynne Jonell

Reviewed by Ms. Pierce at Tesago
Everyone ignores Emmy. Her teacher never looks at her, her classmates never talk to her, she's got zero friends and her parents are always away on really long trips. One day while Emmy is sitting quietly in her classroom, wondering why no one ever seems to notice her, the class Rat starts talking. And Emmy is the only one who seems to hear him.

Soon Emmy and Rat are working together, trying to figure out why Emmy's nanny keeps feeding her strange things, playing some squirrel soccer, and spending a lot of time at The Antique Rat - a store full of very weird rodents. Pick up this book and find out if Emmy outwits her evil nanny, what exactly a Shrinking Rat of Schenectady is, and why on earth anyone would ever want two of them.
