Description

Emily Windsnap is thrilled to arrive at her new home, a secret island near the Bermuda Triangle where humans and merfolk live together, and where being a girl who grows a tail as soon as she enters the water isn't a problem. Being Emily, she can't resist exploring forbidden places - and as a result, she inadvertently wakes the kraken, the legendary deep sea monster who has been asleep for two hundred years. What follows makes a terrifically exciting adventure - not just for Emily, but for her old adversary Mandy Rushton, whose parents have taken her on a cruise and whose father thinks he can make his fortune if he catches a mermaid. Their voices alternate as the kraken's terrifying tentacles rise from the deep, threatening the future of the islanders, and kraken worshippers try to sink the cruise ship. Mermaid magic, a fabulous monster, and wonderful descriptions of undersea life make this a rich fantasy that is a real page turner and has all the charm and warmth of Liz Kessler's first book, THE TAIL OF EMILY WINDSNAP.show more
