Emmy is an ordinary girl-almost. Because she has been bitten by Raston the Rat, she can talk to rodents-and they talk back. With the help of a second bite from Raston, Emmy and her friend Joe can also shrink down to rodent size. These capabilities prove useful, since the children must try to stop Miss Barmy, Emmy's horrible former nanny. Now a rat, Miss Barmy is keeping five little girls hostage and has a plan to steal Emmy's family's jewels. . . . Black-and-white illustrations.
