  • Naomi, age 10 of Malden, MA
    I love it because Emily is a jolly good semi-mer. She is also my favorite character.

  • Emily
    The book is really good. I did not really like the last book that much though. Emily's Mom and Dad spend way to much time with each other and not that much time with Emily. The book is good. I would give it 3-5 toes.

  • Anjolina, age 10 of North Bergen, NJ
    i love emily windsnap im going to get her second book this year! 5 toes!

  • Ainsley, age 9 of Sterling, CO

    I mean the first book is good, but I think the last one is so bad. The book gives you great ideas for games and stories!

  • Myra, age 10 of Semmes, AL

  • V, age 7 of FL
    best ever!

  • Maria, age 12
    I love these books, I stumbled across the series at my local library. And if any of the younger kids don't like it might be because its to difficult for them to read. Even though it's a simple read.

  • Maya, age 8
    I love the books. If you have not read the rest you have GOT to!

    love it!!! it might just be the best book I ever read. the perfect book for a girly girl that dreams to be a mermaid.

  • Ayesha, age 12 of Maryland
    i love it because when I read it I was thinking that I wished I was because I would like to have some adventure in my life.

  • Je-Uhn, age 11 of Stuttgart, Germany
    I think this story is great! Because this girl (well, Emily, you know) discovers more mysteries and questions when the curiosity of her mind desire to find about her life and destiny, she even is patient, clever, friendly, curious (well, I mentioned it, already), and grows up more each day (includes turn braver). Even finds a friend Shona (becomes best friend), helps her answers her desired questions, but the last one is for Emily herself to solve, and she did! It has a happy ending!

  • Virginia, age 10 of Birmingham, AL
    LOVE IT!!! It is so sweet. I would say more reasons but that would give the book away!

    I LOVE this book and the series. it is a heart warming book that makes me want to cry in some parts.

  • Valerie, age 14 of Wellington, FL
    I read this book a couple of years ago and I LOVED IT. It's probably not the best book for older people just because all of the characters are shallow. I mean that there is not much character depth. For younger kids, I highly recommend it!

  • Lillie, age 13 of Lithia
    I love this book because I like mermaids!

  • Zoom of Lake Of Tranquility, YT
    It was little worse then okay, it was a bit clique. The writing wasn't all that good either.

  • Jennifer of Orange County, CA
    Its awesome because it has great adventures and the rest of the books are awesome!!!

  • Joclyn, age 12 of Greene, ME
    I read 1 book and enjoyed it, I am planning on getting the rest.

  • Adaiah, age 14 of Pennsauken, NJ
    I thought it was okay... I didn't really finish the book. I got it because it was about mermaids, I love magical things, but I just wasn't intrested. I guess it was because it didn't have any fighting in it. Or adventure, from how far I got in the book... it just didn't interest me, but it was okay.

  • Liliy, age 12 of St. Paul
    i ilke this book alot its fun magical and exiting

  • Jourdan of San Bernardino, CA
    AWSOME. one of the coolest storys I have read. for you people who watch h20 its like that

  • Patricia, age 8 of Gilbert, AZ
    I thought TheTail of Emily Windsnap was GREAT!!!

  • Layla, age 8 of Elk Grove
    I love mermaids...

  • Paula, age 16 of Oklahoma City, OK
    LIke it? I loved it! I've read all four books. Liz Kessler inspires me so much and I would love to see more Emily Windsnap. A movie would be a pretty exciting thing.

  • Liz
    The Emily Windsnap books are filled with adventure and excitement. I think Liz Kessler does a good job of explaining pre-teen issues. I hope everyone enjoys these as much as I do. Me and my BFF think they are super swishy and fin-tastic books.

  • Uenjy, age 9 of Bethlehem
    Okay! Are you kidding!? She is awesome! They need to make a movie!

  • Mary, age 9 of Mansfield, MA
    The Tail of Emily Windsnap" is a great book and a read aloud. I think that mermaids and mermen are really cool even though they aren't real. I love when she finds out that she is half mermaid, half girl! What I am saying is that this book is a great book that you will read over and over and over again. I recommend this book to girls with high reading levels. It may be a fantasy, but Liz Kessler has really captured the realistic life of a girl's friend/enemy relationship. This is the best book I have read since the Harry Potter series.

  • Tara, age 14 of Saint Louis, MO
    I love it! I hope there is a movie coming out soon!!!

  • Shannon, age 11 of Hebron, MD
    love it!

  • Emily, age 10 of Fairport, NY
    I just got this book from my mom, and it's so cool! Since I first saw the Little Mermaid, (the movie from Disney!), I fell in love with mermaids. Even more awesome is that Emily is just like me! (We even share the same name!) The author, Liz Kessler is really good at telling how preteens feel about life! I'm already on Chapter 3, where Emily meets another mermaid!

  • Sam
    I love the fantasy aspect of it, I really enjoy the characters and their different personalities.

  • Emma
    I love this book! It was swishy!

  • Maddi, age 13 of Ephrata, PA
    I liked this book, the only two things were: Millie and her "psychic" powers, and when Emily disobeyed or tricked someone to get her way. That's not how we should live; on trickery and lies.

  • Uenjy, age 9 of Bethlehem
    Okay! Are you kidding!? She is awesome! They need to make a movie!

  • Emily, age 10 of Vancouver, WA
    I lov it it is a book of mystery and eximent. I also like it because the main charecter has my first name!

  • Madeleine, age 12 of Branford, CT
    I love the emily windsnap sieries. the author makes it soo realistic it' really fun to read. if you like this book you'll like the harry potter siries too. I LOVE both

  • Eliana, age 11 of Summerfield, FL
    I really like the Tail Of Emily Windsnap, because it has mermaids in it, and I love books that have dragons and other creatures like mermaids in them!! And I also like it because it doesn't have any magic in it, and I can't read books that have magic in them! So I am always excited when I find a good book that has no magic in it!

  • Leia, age 12 of Los Angeles, CA
    I am reading it right now, and it is an amazing book so far! I love it!

    Liz Kessler is an amazing author. I love these books. Just last week I read it for the first time. I love it, it is an amazing story. I loved the part when she went back to her school swimming pool and turned into a mermaid. Looks like some memory wiping is taking place. This is my favorite series. I give this book 100, 000, 000, 000, 000, 000, 000 toes infinity.

  • Destiny, age 9 of Manila, AR
    It talks about some girl and her secert and tells you about what happen to her.

  • Steph, age 12 of Parma, OH
    liz kessler you are amazing! I wish that you would never stop writing the emily windsnap books! it is my favorite series and I have the hardest time putting it down! when I finish one book, I hunt for the next one. I would like to give you the greatest of complements and tell you that your by no dought my favorite writer! you helped to inspire me to write my own books and I hope one day they get published! I dont know if I can do that but either way it's because of you that I even tried. when I finish the last emily windsnap book I think it will be hard for me because I love them so much. when I read them I get lost in the book, the characters, and their world! the book makes me want to swim! also, I never liked reading-i always enjoyed writing though- until I read the very first emily windsnap book. I first got it in 3rd grade and I'm now in seventh and I still LOVE them!

  • Abbey, age 11 of CA
    i only read this book because it was easy and I neede to write a book report for school. I didnt like it personally becuase I am not really into mermaids. I think this book is targeted for kids younger then me. all I can say is if you like mermaids you like this book. otherwise you might not.

  • Kaela, age 10 of Town Of Canmore, AB
    I love this book because Ive always loved water all my life it feels magical and it makes you feel special also. My point is that I've always wanted a tail and now it makes me feel anything can happen its also very descripteve and I love it.
