Book Description

Emma has always loved animals—her two ferrets, the family’s friendly poodle, and her sister’s fluffy cat. But now Emma is in love in a way she has never been before—with a big, beautiful bay horse named Rooney. Emma rides him at a nearby stable and thinks of him as her own horse until she finds out he’s for sale. Emma will die if somebody buys him! Emma has another dilemma, too. Her best friend is moving away, and even Annie, the best nanny in the whole world, can’t help. Emma tries to solve both dilemmas, with some humorous mishaps, and finds out that family, friendship, and finding a place where you belong are what are really important.


Editorial Reviews

Review

Gr. 3-5 In this sixth Emma Dilemma title, Emma is devastated to learn that Rooney, the horse she adores, is for sale. With potential buyers on the way, Emma enlists her BFF Luisa s help in a secret plan to ensure that Rooney stays. Although things don t pan out as hoped, a turn of events brings a surprising, positive outcome. With humorous details and diverse supporting characters, this title features an engaging, lively protagonist who faces familiar challenges, from doing what s right to dealing with change, and gains insights along the way. Emma followers will welcome this enjoyable installment. --Booklist April 1, 2011

Gr 3-5 As Emma tries to prevent her favorite horse, Rooney, from being sold from the stables next door, she finds out that her best friend, Luisa, is moving away. In this sixth installment, Emma is, as usual, buried in dilemmas, some of her own making, while others are thrust upon her. She learns that home is, ultimately, any place where people love you and that a little kindness can go a long way. This is a funny addition to the series with plenty of wacky mishaps including a flooded bathroom and a baby-oiled ferret. Fans of Paula Danziger s Amber Brown books (Putnam) will like Emma, too. --School Library Journal March 2011

5.0 out of 5 stars Great book, perfect for my eight-year old January 6, 2013
Format:Hardcover|Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
This book is written from the perspective of a third grade girl and covers the current day dilemmas of young girls. My daughter is in second grade and has been enjoying reading it with me; although she would read it fine on her own. It was published in 2011 and is a very enjoyable chapter book that covers issues such as friendships, school, climate change and how her family decides to conserve, her love of animals, etc.

I definitely recommend it.

4.0 out of 5 stars Entertaining, but maybe not for boys March 29, 2013
Format:Hardcover|Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
The 5-year-old boy doesn't automatically dislike books with girl protagonists, so when we got this I thought he might enjoy it. But something about Emma didn't sit well with him and he was off very shortly thereafter. Not even the ferrets and horse elements (he love animals) could keep him interested.

This installment of Emma Dilemma finds her family "going green" and Emma saving up to buy a horse - among other exploits. The words are small and definitely appropriate for early readers. It was a bit long for a chapter book for early readers - but the more advanced reader might enjoy the length and find it an easy, non-challenging read.

Format:Hardcover|Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
I bought this book for a good friend of my son's (who's seven years old) that LOVES horses! She said she loved Emma Dilemma and was excited to read it. Her mom thought it was a great, thoughtful gift. She has since read the book with her mom and both enjoyed it. Would definitely recommend!

4.0 out of 5 stars Pretty good book but a little long January 22, 2013
Format:Hardcover|Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
My twelve year old read this book and she said that she liked it but it was long. I asked her to elaborate and she said that it had a lot of chapters but she finished it in a few hours of continuous reading. A younger child may take longer to read the book. The story is about a girl who likes a horse that is in the stables and the horses owner moves away and leaves the horse there. The horse goes up for sale and when a potential buyer comes to see if they want the horse, things happen negatively to the horse so the horse seller raises the price of the horse which made them not want to purchase it. The girls parents buy the horse for her. But that's not all that happens in the book.

My daughter recommends this book to those aged approximately 7-11. It was easy to read and had easy words. She recommends it to other kids who like reading about girls and adventures.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great book, it's fun and interesting for kids January 18, 2013
Format:Hardcover|Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
This is really a sweet book! My granddaughter is in the 2nd grade and enjoyed the book very much. The book is recommended for grades 3-5, but we chose this book because the book description was interesting to her. She is required to read aloud every night and she was able to read this book to me with very few difficulties, and it helped improve her reading skills. The story was easy for her to understand, and easy enough to keep her interested. There were several very funny moments in the story which really kept her interested!

This is the sixth book in the Emma Dilemma series, but it's the first one we've read. We didn't feel like we missed anything, as the book stood easily on it's own. It's fun, it kept her interest, and was a very nice story. We're getting more from the series for her for her upcoming birthday!

4.0 out of 5 stars More Impossible Dilemmas for Emma January 1, 2013
Format:Hardcover|Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
This is the sixth chapter book in the Emma Dilemma series for young readers Grades 2 - 4, and picks up right after the conclusion of book 5. Emma is a very talkative kid, whose story is told through rapid fire dialogue, and a stream of conscience unburdening of her decision making process. For Emma seems to always be weighing the pros and cons, problems and solutions to every nuance in her life. What adds to the humor is when she has to deal with the unintended consequences of her multiple plans of action. From emotionally getting her family to "go green", to her desire to buy the best horse ever, Emma's adventures are great for young readers learning to read independently.
