Best for older children, the Uncle Emily is the great poet Emily Dickinson, and in this book she shares a poem with the class of one of her young nephews. He finds he must defend her to his class, which he successfully does, with even the largest bully writing a thank you note to "Uncle" Emily in rhyme to apologize.
