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 shimmering mermaid’s tail! Soon Emily discovers a glorious underwater world of fishes, coral and shipwrecks. Even better, she makes a brand new best friend in mermaid Shona Silkfin! But when Emily reveals a family secret and sets off on a quest to reunite her mum and dad, is she diving into danger?

“An absolutely enchanting debut – a salty splash of something fresh within the tradition of mermaid tales.” Amanda Craig

“A magical fantasy – exciting, touching, funny and highly original.” Cheshire Life

    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! :-)

    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!
