You can never go wrong with a Liz Kessler novel because they are all so well written, so riveting, so magical.
I was originally introduced to Liz and her work in 2016 on a bus ride out of state for vacay and we happened upon a shopping mall for lunch break. I noticed a Barnes and Noble nearby and went in search for a children's book to honor the loving memory of my 12yo niece who loved mermaids. In fact she loved them so much she would swim in full mermaid attire.
I did find the first in the seri

This is the eighth book in the Emily Windsnap series, and my first introduction to the character. Reading the other books is not necessary to enjoying this one, but I still have no idea how old Emily is supposed to be. At times she comes across as an older teen, then other times she comes across as a pre-teen. It did lead to some confusing images in my head while reading. I loved Sam (the pirate prince) and the "strained" relationship between him, his brother, and his parents. It would be diffic ...more

I fell in love with this cover and had to read this mermaid tale! I had no idea before requesting this title that this is the eighth installment in this mermaid series, but it read great as a stand alone. Now that I know about this series, I do want to go back to the beginning and read the first one.
This was a fun story and quick read. If you like mermaids and pirate adventures, you’d enjoy this book!
Thank you to Candlewick Press and NetGalley for this fun ARC in exchange for my honest review,

EMILY WINDSNAP AND THE PIRATE PRINCE is the first book in the series that I've ever read. I think I own a couple of the others, books I bought when my own older reader was the right age to enjoy them, but we never got around to reading them. I enjoyed the book. It was a super quick read, and even had a few unexpected twists. Emily makes a spunky, fun narrator and the plot moves quickly through a series of challenges as Emily and her team of pirates race toward the treasure and Sam's chance to be ...more

Emily Windsnap and the Pirate Prince is actually book #8 in this cute little series. The first book is The Tail of Emily Windsnap. I would highly recommend this book for girls, probably ages 8-12!

Emily is a young girl whose father is a merman and her mother is human. That makes her half mermaid. Because of this, she turns into a mermaid anytime that she touches water. Her best friend Shona is also a mermaid and her boyfriend, Aaron, is half like her! (This reminds me a lot of the TV series H20 w

The Emily Windsnap books are childhood favorites. If I could be any mythical creature, I'd be a half-mer.

I was so excited when I found out there was a fifth book with Emily and Co. Then I found out about a sixth. Recently, I was talking to a friend who said she thought there were more. Lo and behold, there were TWO more.

The Pirate Prince was much better than the last installment in this series. I liked the story line and it was interesting to me. I DO NOT LIKE the ending!!!!! That did not make

This book was received as an ARC from Candlewick Press in exchange for an honest review. Opinions and thoughts expressed in this review are completely my own.

Our young readers love the Emily Windsnap series and the adventures she gets herself into. This time it involves her boyfriend Aaron getting kidnapped by a bunch of pirates and in order to save him, she finds herself on the same ship befriending the Pirates especially the son of the captain. Now because she has feelings for the captain's so

This book is part of a series but I found that the author catches you up so well that you don't need to read the rest to know what is going on but I imagine it would certainly help. I really loved reading this book. It had a strong storyline with great characters and this has certainly made me want to read the rest of the books in the series. I will definitely be keeping an eye on this author in the future. Wonderful writing and I look forward to carrying on with the series.

It was another swishy book to the series. However I am unsure of how Liz ended the book.

Emily Windsnap and the Pirate Prince is the 8th book in a series chronicling the adventures of Emily, a spunky half-mer (half human, half mermaid). Throughout this series we’ve witnessed her coming to terms with who she is, learning the history of her family, making best friends with a mermaid named Shona, and rescuing and meeting her half-mermaid boyfriend, Aaron. In each book, Emily has overcome life-threatening obstacles, saving mermaids, humans, and even the Sea King Neptune, who has inadver ...more

I had my son (7) read this to me because he loves all things ocean and he loved it! He loved seeing the pirate life and the pirates race to find the treasure! He was happy Emily enjoyed pirate life because he thinks pirates are awesome too. Emily always seems to find her way in life and I enjoyed listening to my son engaged in the story!
