McGovern spent part of her career at Scholastic, where she created the SeeSaw Book Club. McGovern lives in New York City.

Excerpt. Reprinted by permission. All rights reserved.:

From Chapter 3: Eugenie had learned how to skin a dead animal in the lab in college, but she felt she needed more practice. One day the neighborhood grocer killed a big rat in his store and Eugenie begged to have it.

The grocer wrapped it up and she took it home. Good. There was nobody in the house. Quickly Eugenie skinned it. Then she got out one of her grandmother's cooking pots.

She wanted the skeleton. She would have to boil the rat. Every five minutes Eugenie ran into the street to see if Grandma was coming. Then she ran into the house again and checked the pot. The rat was still boiling on the stove when Eugenie suddenly heard Grandma's footsteps outside.

What could Eugenie do?

It was too late to do anything. Grandma was standing in the kitchen doorway.

"Genie, darling," she said. "What are you cooking?"

Before Eugenie could stop her, she lifted the pot cover, peered inside, and saw the big rat's two sharp teeth.

Grandma was very angry. And Eugenie was not allowed to cook in the kitchen again for a long time.
