All of Emily's friends have someone special to take them to the ice cream parlor, or the ballet, or the park. Now that her mother is busy with the new baby, Emily doesn't have anyone to entertain her -- no uncles or big sisters or aunts.
Emily sets out to solve her little difficulty and succeeds beyond her wildest dreams. The result is eighteen eager aunts, who cause mayhem wherever they go. If only they weren't so. . .different. Now Emily has a much bigger problem. How can she stop the aunts from embarrassing her without hurting their feelings?
Emily's Eighteen Aunts is a warm, funny look at what happens when one thing leads to another -- and another. And happily, Emily finds out that being different is far more fun than she thought possible.
