#The Tale of Emily Windsnap
I made this after I saw an awesome post by @cjbolan about the “Tale of Emily Windsnap”, and I was thinking about how ‘Emily Windsnap’ has both an awesome message about unity and family, while being a sweet magical story.
There’s a big project involving her apparently in the works, and I hope they keep her message from the books without watering it down. Needless to say, the swim lessons being mandatory was NOT in the original books so I’d be lying if I said I wouldn’t be a wee bit disappointing to see that.

Magical Reads for Middle Grade
Cathy recommends some perfect middle grade reads for our Imagine Your Story summer reading theme!
A Tale Of Magic by Chris Colfer
AR book level: 6.3, 18.0 points
In a time when reading is forbidden for girls, and performing magic is a crime, Brystol savors every book she can get her hands on. In an effort to read more, she takes a job cleaning the library. One night, in a secret section of the library, she discovers the book The Truth About Magic by Celeste Weatherberry. Brystol learns that she has magic within herself and her world changes forever.
Magic and adventure abound in this first book in a new series that is a prequel to Colfer's The Land of Stories series. Learn about young Xanthous, Skylene, and Tangerina and other fairies, before they were a part of the Fairy Council. This book is for everyone who fell in love with the popular The Land of Stories series. (The second book in this series is due in September.)
Emily Windsnap and The Pirate Prince by Liz Kessler
AR book level: 3.9, 7.0 points
Emily is traveling on a cruise ship with her mom and boyfriend, Aaron, when Aaron is taken prisoner by pirates! Emily must join forces with a scruffy pirate prince, Sam, to save Aaron. Making things more difficult, Sam finds himself in a contest with his ruthless brother, in which they must figure out difficult riddles and complete tasks to locate the Trident's Treasure. Helping Sam win the contest may be the only way Emily has to ever see Aaron again. Unfortunately for Emily, the pirates consider mermaids to be bad luck, so Emily must try to remain in her human form or risk being found out.
Full of fantasy and adventure, this eighth book in the Emily Windsnap series is winner!
A Tale of Highly Unusual Magic by Lisa Papademetriou
AR book level: 4.9, 8.0 points
Kai and Leila are on opposite sides of the world. Kai is in Texas visiting her great-aunt and Leila is visiting family in Pakistan. Each girl discovers a copy of a beautiful old book, The Exquisite Corpse. But how disappointing, beside the title page and one page of print, the books are blank.
But, someone has handwritten the name “Ralph T. Flabbergast” on the printed page. Kai takes out her pen and writes, “was a complete fool” after it. The next time she opens the book, someone has written about Ralph. In fact, every time either Kai or Leila open their books, more and more of the story of Ralph and his friend, Edwina Pickle, appears on the pages in each of their copies! Sometimes Kai or Leila add comments to the story and those appear in each of their copies as well!
Not only is A Tale of Highly Unusual Magic the tale of a magical book narrating Ralph T. Flabbergast and Edwina Pickle's turn of the century story, but it is also a tale about Kai's and Leila's summer adventures and their connections to the past. A magical and engaging summer read indeed!

“Maybe a Mermaid” by Josephine Cameron - a review
This is NOT a spoiler-free review! Spoilers ahead!
I grew up on a hardy literary diet of ‘Emily Windsnap’, ‘Spiderwick Chronicles’, and ‘How to Train your Dragon’ - books that delve deep into fantasy, or skim the surface and marry the myths to the modern age. Books that make you think that maybe there’s a magical creature hiding the woods, or in the case of “Maybe a Mermaid”... a mermaid hiding in the depths of a midwestern lake.
This book is geared towards middle grade readers, ages around 8-13, but I found it incredibly enjoyable and well written even as an adult. The voice of the main character - an eleven year old named Anthoni Gillis - is likeable and relatable.
I went into the book expecting something along the lines of my old fairy tale books; perhaps Anthoni would befriend a mysterious mermaid in a lake and they’d go on magical adventures? Or perhaps the lake was a portal to another magical world?
The amazon description reads;
“A summer romp full of mystery, new friends, and maybe a mermaid!
Eleven-year-old Anthoni Gillis is not the kind of kid who believes in fairies, unicorns, or even the word “maybe.” She’s more of a comic-books girl. So when her mom brings her to Thunder Lake for a summer at the Showboat Resort, she doesn’t believe the local rumors about the Boulay Mermaid.
Anthoni has bigger fish to fry. She’s always wanted a True Blue Friend. But it’s been hard to find one, since for the past five years she’s been bouncing from town to town, helping her mother sell Beauty & the Bee cosmetic products to keep them both afloat. This summer will be different, though. Anthoni has a plan―a foolproof checklist for making lifelong friends! There won’t be any maybes this time.
But as she grows entangled in local gossip, and her mother stretches the truth, Anthoni must decide if she’ll “stick to the plan,” like always, or dive into a summer full of extraordinary possibilities.”
What I loved about the book:
This book took me by surprise in a few ways, it’s themes of family insecurity and how our worldview changes as we grow up and mature were very well written. Most adult readers would realize within the first chapter that Mrs.Gillis was in a pyramid scheme, so watching Anthoni put so much trust and confidence into her foreshadowed the events of later chapters.
I was also surprised that the book contained no actual mermaids, but a ‘washed up’ Vaudeville actress from the 30′s and 40′s - a now elderly woman named Charlotte who owns the ship-shaped motel the Gillis Girls stay at for the duration of the book. I felt like this was a really interesting take for the book to go to, and I adored Charlotte’s character and her wackadoodle antics immensely.
The emphasis on “true blue” friends being temporary was a really good lesson to teach, in my opinion. While the friendships we make as children rarely last into adulthood, the things we learn from these friendships and the happy memories we make with them are just as important, if not more so.
While it’s clear that by the end of the book Anthoni was able to patch things up with her old friend, and make brand new friends to be pen-pals with in her move to Chicago - she clearly wasn’t going to be “true blue” friends forever with Maddy Quinn. Maddy Quinn herself even made new friends in the small town.
I feel like this is a really important message to send to young readers. The intended age group of the book can be a time filled with hard changes and rough memories - moving from elementary to middle school, moving to a new city, a friend moving away, etc - all these things can come together to make some memories not so True-Blue. But the fact that these things happen anyway reminds us to be grateful for the friends we did have, and the memories we were able to make with them - while still moving forward and making new friends along the way.
Is there anything I would change about the book?
Honestly, I feel like this book does an excellent job of standing on it’s own two feet. It’s an extremely solid story with lovable characters, believable dialogue, and an interesting setting. Not many mermaid books take place in the midwest!
However if I had to choose something - maybe after they move, Mrs.Gillis should try and find a job that doesn’t prey on bored suburban mothers. I only disliked her character because of my own experiences involving friends and family getting in to MLMs (multi-level-marketing schemes aka a Pyramid scheme). But that’s not even a literary complaint, that’s just her character. Maybe she isn’t supposed to be very likeable. Lying to her child about her family’s financial situation, and the possibility of making them homeless before the summer got out - kind of rubbed me the wrong way.
But I feel like that made the story that much more interesting - and nailed in the message of the book further.
Anthoni’s idea of a ‘True Blue Friend’ and the childhood idea that ‘All Parents Know What They’re Doing’ was false, but she moves forward at the end of the book with new friends and a more independent worldview. Her vision of the ‘Gillis Girls’ was changed forever, but that shows the growth of character that Anthoni goes through during the book.
“Maybe a Mermaid” was a superb book with great writing and an excellent message for young readers, and mature readers alike.
I give this book a solid 10/10!

my beloved Mitchell,
I hope you are well. I've seen the post abt your writing class and I'm very happy for you. Seeing you write, the way you write, makes me excited abt my own art too. I hold your words close to my heart everyday and hope one day I will be buying books with your name on the cover.
If you are any curious abt the beach, it was very nice, I can't swim but I went really far into the water bc the sea was very calm, I also got sunburn but I'm fine haha. Maybe if one day we write real handwritten letters to eachother, I can send you a seashell. The sea and the summer got me thinking abt a loved one, abt how scared I'm of being open to people... the golden light that shines during the summer is the same one that blooms love. It scares me.
Anyway, how do you feel abt mermaids?!
Good morning! I write this just before I start my errands of the day. The sun is out and it’s a beautiful day. Hope the weather is the same wherever you are xo. I also hope that your art is thriving and blossoming-- it makes me so excited to hear that my writing gets people hiking up their own proverbial craft sleeves. The world needs more art-- and my world needs your art even more! And if you (and anyone reading this) is ever still interested when I publish my first book, you all will get signed copies I swear to God. I have all of you to thank for even getting me here.
I actually really love mermaids? I’m from a shore town so they’re just part of my childhood lore. One of my favorite books as a kid was The Tale of Emily Windsnap (have you read it?!) and I still want to write a mermaid book to this day but fantasy is very much out of my wheelhouse at the moment, but maybe one day!! What are your thoughts?
I would love a seashell one day-- we can trade. And, to be a Poet on Main, that bright sun blooms love but also, can be just for you. It is a private warmth even though it covers everything. It’s so personal on how it crosses your face and your skin. It can be shared, or it can be kept to yourself for a bit longer knowing though, that everyone has the same secret! The safety is knowing it will never be too foreign to anyone, the same way we all have the same heart in us, just different words... And there’s my poetics for the day.
Posting my love post-haste,
Mitchell K. x

A List of Books I Devoured As A Child:
The Magic Treehouse - I absolutely loved the outlandish adventures the two kids went on. I read a whole stack of these in a day when I was about eight or nine and I was very proud of myself. I was also a big fan of the mermaid named Kathleen (that’s my name!)
The Spiderwick Chronicles - I was practically in love with Jared Grace when I was a kid. When I was nine we moved to Bavaria in Germany and my sisters and I would explore with Arthur Spiderwick’s field guide and just go nuts. Could’ve sworn I saw a few sprites when I was blueberry picking once.
The Penderwicks - only the first two books. I have 3 sisters, so I always loved this story because my sisters and I could find ourselves in the characters. Even now, I’m so mad the author didn’t have Skye marry Jeffery in the end. They were eleven-year-old me’s OTP.
Harry Potter - I can’t even begin to explain how much I love these books.
Percy Jackson - I started reading these in seventh grade, after I was diagnosed with ADD, and it was really powerful to see a protagonist who also had an attention disorder, and to have it used as a power. I’m also still in love with Percy.
Savvy - I reread and reread this book well into high school, and every time, I felt like I discovered something new, and understood the story in a new way.
Dear Dumb Diary - I related to Jamie Kelly so much as a kid; the artsyness and awkwardness and general feeling of being completely mediocre. I found out they made a movie musical of it a couple years ago and it was appropriately absurd, terrifying, and entertaining.
Inkheart - I thought these books were so clever and original! I also loved how they took place in Europe - I lived in the Netherlands at the time, but I’d already traveled a lot and I felt like I could picture everything so vividly. I wanted desperately to be a Silvertongue.
The Chronicles of Narnia - these books hold tremendous personal significance to me and my family. When I was seven, my dad deployed to Iraq, and while he was gone, my mom read us the entire Narnia series. It was an escape, a wondrous coping mechanism. Lucy was my favorite, and I’ve been told by a handful of people that I look like the actress who played her in the recent movies.
A Series of Unfortunate Events - I read these when my dad was in Iraq, but I read these by myself. I loved everything about the series - how unusual the writing style was, the sort of strangely ageless and timeless setting of the stories, the brilliant Baudelaire children. Even though there were 11 or 12 books in the series, it didn’t feel like enough to me.
Little House on the Prairie - I had to read these when I was homeschooled because my mom made me, but after a while I grew to love them. I was particularly fascinated by the house they lived in that had been dug into a hill.
Calvin & Hobbes - technically comics, but I loved these so much as a kid. They are the basis for my sense of humor, to be honest.
The Tail of Emily Windsnap, Phillipa Fisher and the Fairy’s Secret - mermaids! Fairies! Both series that I adored! I loved the intricate world weaved into these tales, of familial complexities and girls learning who they and what they stand for.
The Giver - we were assigned to read this in 6th grade for English class, and I read it three or four times over in the time it took everyone else to read it once. It was nothing like I’d ever read before, and it’s filled with so much humanity and truth. It’s still one of my favorite books.
I’ll probably add more, but these are the big ones.
