9780061452352: Dark Times (Emily the Strange)

Emily the Strange stands for: do it yourself; think for yourself; be yourself.

In her third highly original and wildly improbable adventure, Emily travels back in time to the 18th Century (via her homemade Time Out machine) to learn the truth behind a class assignment. Naturally, mayhem ensues. Fans will welcome the return of key characters from the first novel (The Lost Days) and discover that Dark Times lives up to their darkest, strangest expectations.

Told in Emily’s established diary format, it features her strong, unique first-person narrative along with a penchant for Top 13 lists. The books are illustrated with black-and-red art representing Emily’s own sketches, doodles and archival photographs.

Review:

"There's no doubting the lighthearted but darkly hued creativity on display. Pure black gold."----ALA Booklist

"[Emily's] sarcastic, nerdy individualism--with a hint of buried sweetness--will make readers want to spend more time with her."--Publishers Weekly

"The book dresses up teen-identity issues in midnight-black humor and piles on so much persistent weirdness that oddball outsiders, goths in training, and other subversive types will find themselves positively smirking with glee."----ALA Booklist

"A highly enjoyable read that will appeal to both readers new to the series and Emily fans alike."----School Library Journal
