Emmy Addison was an ordinary girl - almost. If you didn't count the fact that her parents were rich (very), her best friend was a boy (and a soccer star), and she could talk to rodents (and they talked back), she was very ordinary indeed. But she hadn't been that way for long...It was only a few weeks ago that Emmy and her friends Ratty and Joe got rid of the evil Miss Barmy, the nanny who had nearly ruined Emmy's life - and the lives of five other girls who went missing. Miss Barmy is now a rat. How much harm can she still do? The hilarious, inventive, and irresistibly rodent-friendly sequel to Emmy and the Incredible Shrinking Rat.
