With over 2.5 million fans, Emily the Strange clothing and accessories are sold around the world-from high fashion in Italy, to the 'Emily the Strange' stores in Asia, to her roots in the Bay Area. Emily the Strange is also the star of comic books and a line of stationery products as well as the anti-hero of upcoming feature film. Our four book deal marks her debut as literary character.
In her second adventure, Emily finds that she has created her own nemesis when she accidentally clones herself. Again told in diary format, like EMILY THE STRANGE: THE LOST DAYS, this second novel features strong, unique first-person narrative along with her penchant for Top 13 lists.

The commitment to individuality and to excellence carries over to the novels which, in addition to being engaging stories in their own right, are books noted for their collectability.
Praise for Emily the Strange - Lost Days
"I had only heard of Emily The Strange in passing, and didn't really know much about the books, comics, or product line. However, I'm already in love with the character and the way the stories are told. It reminds me of a very intelligent version of Greg Heffley from the Diary of a Wimpy Kid series, except that instead of it being almost entirely graphic novel, it's part novel, part graphics, and part a whole bunch of other interesting stuff."
"This has quickly become one of my new favorite books, and I've recommended it to several people already. It's a great read for anyone with an afternoon free, but its target age will be 9-13 year olds."
