I liked the character of Emily. Take it or leave it.
That argument exists in the book. It stood out to me as an adult reader but my twelve year old self would have been sure to miss it. She plays an extremely minor role in the book and is not a key character. She appears to be more heavily involved in the end of the story and in no way is her mysticism mentioned in the later half of the book that I caught on to. This book is imaginative and creative. Any reader would need to decide their own comfort levels in picking up this book. For my part, I recognized the potential political arguments that Kessler was raising and still enjoyed the book for the adventure and mystery of the sea.
Carrie comes by her book obsession honestly, having descended from a long line of bibliophiles. She blogs about books regularly at Reading to Know. My ten-year old daughter loves this book, as well as the sequels. She has been obsessed with mermaids since she was tiny it all started with The Little Mermaid , and this book did not disappoint. Overall, though, we think this book is wonderful.

I have read the whole series of Emily Windsnap books and love them! The issues concerning the tarot cards are not a big deal, they only make the book more mysterious and fun. I had picked up on the marriage issues when I read the first book, and I was 12 at the time. Dear Liz Kessler, I love this book, I even did it for one of my school book reports, I read it to my sister and my mom and they read some to me.
My favorite part was at the end when she shows everyone that is in her swimming class that she is a mermaid and when she looks across the room there is thirty open mouths!
I also want to know why you wanted to write this kind of book and what did you like most about writing this book. My name is Lili, I am in fourth grade and I loved your book!!!!!!!!
I remember reading this when I was in the 4th grade…Probably my favorite mermaid story besides the Little Mermaid!! Hi, My name is Ramanika.

Part of the Emily Windsnap Series. 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.
