Emma Has A Dilemma! makes learning fun. The Emma Series was created specifically to take a subject like grammar and make the ins and outs of learning it something to look forward to; rather than something to avoid.

The characters are by far the best part of the book. Emma is an 8 year old tomboy who doesn’t really like school, but she’s always willing to listen to the whimsical Wizard Jake.  Wizard Jake is precious with his lined note paper cape, pencil with an A on top wand, and a dunce cap with a place to write letters.

They meet when Emma get an F on her first easy grammar exam about nouns and pronouns and as she is crying Wizard Jake appears to encourage her that this is an opportunity to really learn nouns and pronouns.

Jake is a genius at grammar and exactly what Emma needs to overcome her situation which could lead not only to detention, but disappointment from her parents. She listens to Jake and he uses his wonderful wand to create chalk boards in the sand for her to learn the difference between a noun and a pronoun. Emma finally figures out what she needs to do for her make up exam so the F won’t go on her permanent record.

The general tone of the book is upbeat even though Emma can be stubborn. And eventually during the Emma Series (a total of 4 books) Emma and Wizard Jake form a glorious friendship where two people from completely different worlds come together.

Emma Has A Dilemma! is unique because it takes something difficult like grammar and simplifies it in lyrical rhymes. And Wizard Jake and Emma are two vibrant and special allies.
