    "Emma is confident, outgoing and tenacious... [Her] lively personality is evident in the cartoonish black-and-white illustrations… [A]n entertaining series debut." --Kirkus Reviews

    "...Siegal's heroine has all the personality and persistence necessary for a career in front of a camera (or between the pages of a chapter book)." --Publisher's Weekly
