9780761459057: Emma Dilemma, the Nanny, and the Best Horse Ever (Emma Dilemma series)

Emma has always loved animals—her two ferrets, the family’s friendly poodle, and her sister’s fluffy cat. But now Emma is in love in a way she has never been before—with a big, beautiful bay horse named Rooney. Emma rides him at a nearby stable and thinks of him as her own horse until she finds out he’s for sale. Emma will die if somebody buys him! Emma has another dilemma, too. Her best friend is moving away, and even Annie, the best nanny in the whole world, can’t help. Emma tries to solve both dilemmas, with some humorous mishaps, and finds out that family, friendship, and finding a place where you belong are what are really important.

Review:

Gr. 3-5 In this sixth Emma Dilemma title, Emma is devastated to learn that Rooney, the horse she adores, is for sale. With potential buyers on the way, Emma enlists her BFF Luisa s help in a secret plan to ensure that Rooney stays. Although things don t pan out as hoped, a turn of events brings a surprising, positive outcome. With humorous details and diverse supporting characters, this title features an engaging, lively protagonist who faces familiar challenges, from doing what s right to dealing with change, and gains insights along the way. Emma followers will welcome this enjoyable installment. --Booklist April 1, 2011

Gr 3-5 As Emma tries to prevent her favorite horse, Rooney, from being sold from the stables next door, she finds out that her best friend, Luisa, is moving away. In this sixth installment, Emma is, as usual, buried in dilemmas, some of her own making, while others are thrust upon her. She learns that home is, ultimately, any place where people love you and that a little kindness can go a long way. This is a funny addition to the series with plenty of wacky mishaps including a flooded bathroom and a baby-oiled ferret. Fans of Paula Danziger s Amber Brown books (Putnam) will like Emma, too. --School Library Journal March 2011
