September 2012 Book of the Month. This is a magical and enchanting fantasy adventure about the power of friendship. Fifth in the series. Fun and fesity Emily and Aaron are sent by Neptune on a top secret mission to thwart a danger that threatens the whole world. As semi-mers (human on land and mer people underwater) only they can be trusted to complete this mission. But can they save the world and will their relationship hold fast? Fans of Cathy Cassidy's writing will love this one and all the Emily Windsnap novels. There are five in all.
At last this wonderful series of four novels is available in a lovely boxed set. It's an enchanting fantasy, with vivid scenes of a brilliantly realized underwater world and it tells the story of a delightful and wholly believable ordinary little girl who just happens to be part mermaid. Strongly plotted, it deals with universal themes of families, friendship, love and justice all handled with a lightness of touch and an assurance that marks Liz Kessler out as a highly accomplished writer.
Another enchanting story about Emily Windsnap, half-girl, half-mermaid. Fourth in the series. Having been thrown out of mermaid school, Emily goes in search of the lost sirens who have been banished by Neptune to a top secret undersea cavern. Only when she uncovers the true story behind the lost sirens can she begin to reconcile her two worlds but can she do it in time to save herself and her family from the wrath of Neptune? With beautiful illustrations throughout, particularly girls of 8+ will devour this series and be eager for more.
