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

Delightful first-person narrative...Emma is a character complicated enough to question herself, make mistakes and triumph in the end.
Told with a sense of humor that will have the reader rooting for Emma.
