Oh, this one was fun. Clever and a little subversive and very reminiscent of Roald Dahl (particularly The Witches).

Emmy was a likable and solid main character, but Miss Barmy really made the book as a truly fabulous villain. And all of the various rodents were really just icing on the cake (Extract of Gerbil! the Endear Mouse!).

This one will go to the top of my list for recommendations at the Book Shop.
