The Tail of Emily Windsnap
Emily Windsnap has lived on a boat her whole life but her mother has seemed strangely anxious to keep her away from the water itself.
All is explained when Emily is finally allowed to have swimming lessons and she makes a startling discovery. As she learns more about herself, and her mermaid origins, Emily explores the glorious world under the sea, where Neptune rules and mermaids go to school.
And she finds out the truth about the father she has never met. This is a magical story, with vivid scenes of an undersea world and a delightful heroine. The story deals with many issues, including families, friendship, love and justice and all are handled with a lightness of touch that makes for a truly warm-centred novel.
