Emmy and the Rats in the Belfry

Emmy Addison and her whiskered pals are back for their third fun-filled adventure, in which the wicked former nanny Miss Barmy -- turned into a rat at the end of the last story -- is back and seeking revenge on Emmy, Ratty, Sissy and the gang. Reluctant readers will forget about the TV as they get lost in this story, rooting for the young heroine and her crew of magical rodents as they search for the long-lost Rat Mom, and use their unique abilities to take on the fiercest furry foe in Schenectady.
