About the Author

Liz Kessler lives in England, and has worked as a teacher, journalist, and editorial consultant. She says she first knew she wanted to become a writer at the age of nine, when she had a poem published in a local newspaper. The Tail of Emily Windsnap, her first children's book, grew out of a poem she wrote about a mermaid.

Reviews

Pre-teen girls will likely bite at this novel's tempting bait.
--Publishers Weekly

Delightful moments.
--School Library Journal

Light, imagination-tickling fare ideal for middle-grade girls, with charming ink-wash illustrations scattered throughout.
--Booklist

Middle school girls . . . will enjoy the tale.
--VOYA

There is no denying the siren-like allure of mermaid stories. . . . Gibb's spot art has a fluid delicacy that adds much to the watery ambience.
--Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books

Liz Kessler makes a splash with this tightly written, highly imaginative debut.
--FamilyFun

Charming.
--The Wall Street Journal

Liz Kessler creates an engaging heroine, full of funny asides and derring-do, and a sparkling, fast-paced story with more plot twists than a mermaid's flipping tale.
--Washington Parent
