Do you love mermaids?
Emily Windsnap is the half-mermaid, half-human protagonist in this charming series for tween girls. In The Tail of Emily Windsnap, Emily discovers that she is a mermaid during the first day of swim class in Seventh Grade. She also finds her merman father and goes through many adventures along the way. Emily is quirky (she is half-mermaid after all!) and down to earth at the same time. She goes to mermaid school and makes friends while confronting Neptune and other dangers. Tween girls will love the ink drawings by Sarah Gibb.
The author, Liz Kessler, also wrote Emily Windsnap and the Monster from the Deep, where Emily gets in trouble while trying to impress her mermaid friends, Emily Windsnap and the Castle in the Mist, where she finds a diamond ring on the seabed, and Emily Windsnap and the Siren’s Secret, where she is on a mission to assist Neptune in making humans and the merfolk get along.
