"'Emily, ' Mama often says, 'I think your imagination is running away with you again.'
"Emily Bartlett's imagination isn't really so wild. It's just that adventure is pretty scarce in the little farm town of Pitchfork, Oregon in the 1920s. Besides, Emily's ideas always seem sensible at first. Why not use Clorox bleach to transform Dad's old plow horse into a snow-white steer? And what's wrong with feeding rotten apples to the pigs - after all, itsn't it important not to waste good food?
"But at least one of Emily's many schemes has a happy ending. That's her idea to start a library in Pitchford. It's a big project ... The perfect challenge for a girl with a runaway imagination!"
