LIZ KESSLER's first book, THE TAIL OF EMILY WINDSNAP, was published in ten countries. Of EMILY WINDSNAP AND THE MONSTER FROM THE DEEP, she says, "I always knew that Emily's story wasn't finished at the end of the first book. I really wanted to explore the idea of an island where humans and merfolk lived together in peace. I also knew that there was a detail I was missing. Then I happened to see an in-flight video about a theme park with a ride called the Kraken, and I instantly knew that this creature was the missing ingredient." Liz Kessler lives in England.
The imaginative premise will intrigue readers and the suspense will
be enough to keep them reading to the happy ending and perhaps send
them back to Emily's first story.
High-action adventure, a plucky protagonist, and whimsical
illustrations enliven this sea fantasy.
