In my opinion Emmy and The Incredible Shrinking Rat by Lynne Jonell was a very good book. I thought that the author incorporating rats in phrases and in the plot was a very ingenious and original idea. This comes into play for Ratoclepsy, rat-indulged sleep, for which the real term, Narcolepsy, is a condition also involving sleep. I thought it was not only clever and well-written, but the sentence on page 11 about the chocolate cake almost made me cry, showing that Lynne Jonell can make the reader feel emotion very well. I would suggest this book to pretty much anyone. Chop chop!
