Emmaline is a mouse who lives in Emily Dickinson's room.  Influenced by the poet, she begins writing poetry herself and the two strike up a friendship of sorts by writing poems back and forth.  Emily protects the mouse from the dangers of cat and rat-catcher.

It is a cute story that serves as an introduction to the life and poetry of Emily Dickinson for younger readers.
