Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

Grade 2-3–Emma doesn't see herself as a superhero, but when she witnesses the biggest third-grader, Jared, tormenting EllRay, the littlest, she jumps into the fray before she can even consider the consequences. To everyone's surprise, including her own, she manages to best the bully. He vows to take revenge. Adding insult to the threat of injury, EllRay is less than appreciative, and the other students are divided in their loyalties. Some say she shouldn't have done a boy thing and call her Super Emma in a mocking tone. But when Jared tries to dump her in a garbage can during recess, EllRay beats him up, and the other classmates come round. This third adventure in the series once again portrays the plucky young heroine struggling with conflict resolution and the social issues that many children face. A smattering of whimsical black-and-white illustrations helps to move the story along. Emma should be a hit with fans of Amber Brown, Judy Moody, and Clarice Bean.–Debbie Lewis O'Donnell, Alachua County Library District, Gainesville, FL

Review

Delightful first-person narrative...Emma is a character complicated enough to question herself, make mistakes and triumph in the end.

ùKirkus Reviews

Told with a sense of humor that will have the reader rooting for Emma.

More About the Author

BIOGRAPHY OF SALLY WARNER

Sally Warner was born in New York City and grew up in Connecticut and California, where her family moved when she was eight years old. She attended public schools in Pasadena. She then received her B.A. degree from Scripps College in Claremont, California, and her B.F.A. and M.F.A. degrees in fine arts from Otis Art Institute in Los Angeles.

Sally Warner worked as an artist (primarily charcoal drawings) for many years, exhibiting her work at galleries, small museums, colleges, and universities across the country. Her drawings are in many private collections. She also taught art education for ten years at Pasadena City College. Her teaching led her to write her first non-fiction book for adults, ENCOURAGING THE ARTIST IN YOUR CHILD, in 1989. This book sold more than 20,000 copies. She still gets mail about another of her non-fiction books for adults, MAKING ROOM FOR MAKING ART (1994).

Sally Warner then began writing fiction for young readers. Her first novel, DOG YEARS (1995), has sold almost 90,000 copies--in Italy! Sally Warner did the cartoons herself.

To date, Sally Warner has had 30 novels published, mostly for ages 8--12. One of her most popular books so far was SORT OF FOREVER (1998, still available through Scholastic Book Club), which has sold close to 250,000 copies! She also writes for younger readers, ages 7-10; the books in her previous funny series for Viking (ONLY EMMA, NOT-SO-WEIRD EMMA, SUPER EMMA, BEST FRIEND EMMA, and EXCELLENT EMMA) have been getting lots of positive attention. Five ELLRAY JAKES books have come out in the last couple of years, and the 6th-ELLRAY JAKES IS MAGIC! will be out in spring, 2014. Three more EllRays are in the works.

Sally Warner and her husband live in Southern California. She has four step-daughters, five step-grandchildren, and two sons who both have active careers in the arts: dance/choreography/teaching, and stereoscopic computer generated imagery for television and movies. For her family, the arts were definitely not a frill!

I read this book with my 8 year old, though she eaisily could have read it by herself. I enjoyed the story along with her! I appreciate the author creating a character who faces situations any real child would face, without using silly language and mispronunciations (Junie B. Jones). Emma is just a girl who has a regular, working mom and has to solve problems any of our kids might have to solve. We have read the whole Emma series together and love each one. I recommend them all!

My daughter (age 7) and I loved this book. Even though the main character is older than my own child, there were a lot of things in the book we could relate to. The author is very talented with creating "real life" characters in "real life" situations. We have read almost all of the Emma series and can't wait to read the last one we have - Only Emma. I highly recommend this series to any young reader and their parents.
