My niece and I read this together, and we both agreed that it was the best of four novels we had shared! The story itself is fun, and the author's command of the language and poetic devices well above average for this genre/age goup! Kudos, Ms Kessler!
I like this book because of the things that make you want to read more I have to say at least it is a good book for children because some of them believe in mermaids and if you do never stop always believe.
I gave this book a 5 star rating because to me I t was a book of mystery, adventure, fantasy. My favorite part in the book was that when Emily tock King of The Sea out to save her dad Jake. I recommend this book to kids from 5-12 because there is a way to make the book read to you.
