I found this book to be quite entertaining. The premise was light and yet there was a "villian" in it as well. I liked the idea of rodents (which many people do not like) to be nice and easy-going throughout the book. I would recommend this to younger readers. ( )

One of the ways I can figure out the correct rating for a book is how effectively it puts me to sleep. Books that completely fail to put me to sleep get 5 stars. So if you have trouble sleeping, look for my books with low ratings.

Unfortunately, this book started at a 5 and ended at a 2. That's a major fail. So let's walk through what happened. I loved the beginning. The rat talks. He's an annoying, bossy, know-it-all rat. Great character. Emmy basically has no personality. Nothing memorable about her at all. That's ok because we have Rat picking up the slack. Miss Barmy, the nanny, is quite interesting. Everything you don't want in a nanny. Joe is interesting as a regular sized kid, but contributes nothing once he's shrunk. Mr. Vole starts out interesting as he tries desperately to capture Rat, but by the end he's a blubbering idiot with the sole focus of attracting Miss Barmy's attention. Rat’s wonderfully grumpy personality falls by the wayside by the end when all he cares about is becoming famous.

The plot starts out great. Emmy frees the talking rat from her classroom and discovers a shop with talented rodents. When I say talented I mean on the magical end of the spectrum. Miss Barmy is a frequent customer of this shop and she's using rodent potions to control the people around her. All of this is fine and dandy, but eventually the tight weave begins to stretch. People are shrinking and growing. Rodents and their potions are coming at you left and right. Biting and kissing is happening so frequently I can’t keep it straight. Chipmunks are suddenly the nicest animals in the rodent world opening their homes to all manner of man and beast.

It felt like I was in a rat maze with one goal. Getting out. But I give major applause for the cute rat that falls from the tree when you quickly thumb the pages.

Cute story. ( )

Emmaline Augusta Addison is a good girl who tries to do everything right, but no one notices her. Her teacher doesn't seem to remember her name and her classmates ignore her. At home her parents are rarely home. Even when they do stop in, between trips to Paris, Salamanca, the Isle of Bugaloo or anywhere else in the world, they never seem to have the time or interest to spend time with her.

Her nanny, Miss Barmy, tells her that it may be that she doesn't try hard enough. Emmy has won tons of awards, earns top grades in school, takes ballet, French, gymnastics, pottery and more! What more can she do? She drinks, eats and puts up with the potions that Miss Barmy give her, that are to make her better and healthier. She even visits Dr. Leander, the psychiatrist, twice a month per Miss Barmy's orders.

It wasn't anything like this before, when she and her parents lived over the bookstore they owned. The three of them spent time doing things together. They were a real family.

After they inherited the castle of a house they lived in and buckets of money that allowed them to do whatever, her parents were constantly on the go, leaving Emmy in the hands of Miss Barmy and the rest of the house staff.

When Emmy finds that she can talk to the classroom rat, a whole new world opens up. Rat also gives her some ideas that lead her to the Antique Rat; a strange shop that specializes in rodents and is run by the strange and scary Professor Vole. Emmy also finds new friends that will stand by her in the various rodents she meets. She also discovers the dark side about her nanny and how it has been affecting her life.

Fantasy, mystery and humour in good dollops are found in this book. It is a book for middle grades, but adults can get some good enjoyment out of it too. ( )

Narrated by Lynne Jonell and cast. Emmy does her best to be good at home and school but no one seems to notice her. The teacher and kids at school look right through her, and her parents are always off traveling. Only her nanny Miss Barmy notices her and it's mainly to ply her with nutrition shakes and special lotions to maintain Emmy's delicate nutritional balance. The class rat notices Emmy, too; for whatever reason Emmy has always been able to hear and understand the rat's speech. When she frees the rat from his cage, the action sets off an adventure involving animals with special powers and Miss Barmy's greedy intentions. And at last, Emmy has friends. The full cast of voices brings this amusing adventure story to life. ( )
