July Book Reviews

This review is from Awesome Katie, member of Books, Brownies, and Beyond:

Emmy and the Rats in the Belfry
By: Lynne Jonell
This was a very good book. This is the 3rd book in the trilogy and to understand it, it would help if you'd read the 1st two books. Emmy, who her parents think, is irresponsible, is wrongly shipped off to her 2 great-aunts, one of which is on the edge of death. I don't want to spoil the 1st or 2nd books for anyone, but there are 2 rats, one desperate and one eager, an elementary school soccer star, an evil nanny and her sidekick (who loves her more than anything), a mysterious "Ratmom" and a special rodent power to be found out. With bats, cool train rides, late night adventures and a missing girl, Emmy and the Rats in the Belfry is an adventure packed book with lots of interesting characters and "why-did-you-do-that?" moments. I loved reading it and hope others who read will like it to.

For those of you who haven't read the first two:
(1st book): Emmy and the Incredible Shrinking Rat
(2nd book): Emmy and the Home for Troubled Girls

I recommend both.
