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

Welcome to my Amazon Author Page! I am honored you stopped by. I'm the author of over forty books so far, most of them novels for young readers and middle readers. Almost all of them can be called "realistic fiction," but they are always funny, too - just the way real life so often is!

My most recent series for Viking Children's Books are THE EMMA BOOKS: Only Emma, Super Emma, Excellent Emma, and three others, for kids 7 - 10, and THE ELLRAY JAKES BOOKS: EllRay Jakes is Not a Chicken!, EllRay Jakes is Magic!, my most recent book, EllRay Jakes the Recess King!, and five others-with the last one, EllRay Jakes Stands Tall! coming out soon. These are from Viking too, and are also for kids ages 7 - 10.

EllRay's younger sister Alfie has her own series coming, too, between 2016 - 2018. This series takes place three years after the last EllRay book, making Alfie Jakes seven years old when the first book begins - and her big brother EllRay eleven years old. And tall!

An interesting thing about these most recent series - THE EMMA BOOKS and THE ELLRAY JAKES BOOKS - is that all fifteen of them feature the same kids in the same third grade class! Writing the books was like dong a giant puzzle, in a way. But the stories are told from either Emma's or EllRay's point of view, of course.

While I am not able to do school visits at this time, I am always available through my new website - www.sallywarnerbooks.com - and will be happy to answer your questions and read what you have to say. I love my mail! Thanks again for visiting my page, and keep reading.

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.
