Product description

Emily Windsnap lives on a boat, but her mother has always been oddly anxious to keep her out of the water. It is only when Emily has her first school swimming lesson that she discovers why: as soon as she gets into the water, she grows a tail!

Soon Emily discovers a glorious underwater world of fishes, coral, shipwrecks and mermaids, and, best of all, she finds a best friend! With mermaid Shona Silkfin by her side, Emily uncovers a surprising family secret and embarks on a quest to reunite her mum and dad.

This enchanting fantasy deals with universal themes of family, friendship, love and justice – all handled with the lightness of touch for which Liz Kessler is so well known.

    The Tail of Emily Windsnap is a swishy story about a girl called Emily who’s always lived on a boat with her mum, it wasn’t till she started having swimming lessons at school that she discovered something extraordinary about herself… she’s a mermaid! I thought the story line was amazingly put together and there was some great imagination behind the book. I’d totally recommend this book to anyone 10+ and I’ll give it 4/5 stars! :-)

    I think it is awsome every time I read a chapter it was left on a cliff hanger and I am always dying to find out what happens

    This book is great! It has a nice theme, characters, and setting, and even the problem is interesting. The only negative thing is that this may not be a book that can be reread many times. otherwise, amazing!
