Grade 4-6–This is Liz Kessler's sequel (Candlewick, 2006) to The Tail of Emily Windsnap (Candlewick, 2004; Listening Library, 2004), in which a 12-year-old girl discovers she is part mermaid and reunites her human mother and merman father. Emily's happily reunited family moves to an idyllic island located in the Bermuda Triangle where humans and merpeople peacefully coexist. Emily and her mermaid friend Shona become involved in a dangerous adventure. Because of her past hardships in junior high school, Emily wants desperately to fit in with her new peers. While swimming with their friends, Emily and Shona come across a forbidden cave and, trying to prove that they are cool and brave, the girls enter it and unintentionally awaken the kraken, a huge and terrifying monster with tentacles and tusks. A careful balance between the island and the kraken is disrupted and only Emily can put things right. Chapters from Emily's narration alternate with those of a bully from her previous school, Mandy, who becomes involved in the adventure when her vacation on a cruise ship is interrupted by the kraken. The threesome eventually restored peace to the Triangle, and Emily is able to face her personal demons. Narrator Finty Williams brings to life all the charm and imagination of Kessler's tale, expertly alternating character voices. This engaging tale will be a hit with middle schoolers who enjoy fantasy and adventure stories with female characters.–April Mazza, Wayland Public Library, MA

Gr. 4-7. The daughter of a woman and a merman, Emily is a girl on land and a mermaid in the water. Now the family lives on Allpoints Island, safe from the curious inquiries of humans and accepted by the merpeople community. In this sequel to The Tail of Emily Windsnap (2004), our heroine's insatiable curiosity lands her in hot water. While investigating a mysterious lagoon smack in the middle of the ocean, Emily inadvertently rouses the dreaded monster Kracken. A vengeful Neptune, king of the ocean realm, visits the merpeople to express outrage at this turn of events: the Kracken was not supposed to awaken for another eight years, and now destruction threatens the island colony. Emily needs to fess up to her deed and take on the responsibility of calming the creature, a task rife with complications. High-action adventure, a plucky protagonist, and whimsical illustrations enliven this sea fantasy, which will be most thoroughly appreciated by series followers. Anne O'Malley

My seven year old daughter loves this series. Exciting enough to keep the pages turning, but not so exciting that it keeps her awake with nightmares.Published 1 month ago by Deborah D.
