3 Reviews

Rated 0

Emily Windsnap, For National Curriculum Key Stage 2, Interest age: from c 9 years, Fiction, Kids & Teens, Adventure stories (Children's / Teenage), Fantasy & magical realism (Children's / Teenage)

The girl next door has a secret . . . This is the first adventure in the NEW YORK TIMES bestselling series, packed with magic and friendship, now in a new edition with a gorgeous cover look.

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.
