EMILY WINDSNAP AND THE LAND OF THE MIDNIGHT SUN.

EMILY WINDSNAP AND THE LAND OF THE MIDNIGHT SUN by LIZ KESSLER.

Have you ever had nightmares? King Neptune has, and that's why he sent me on a top secret mission.

When I discovered a kingdom with everyone turned to ice, I knew why the nightmares had terrified him. I needed help to complete my mission, but my best friend, Shona, was miles away and my boyfriend, Aaron, had just told me a secret that left us barely speaking. The question was, could we work together to save our world - and our relationship?

Swishy wishes, Emily Windsnap.

FIRST SENTENCE (Chapter 1): We interrupt this programme to bring you a severe weather warning.

MEMORABLE MOMENT (Page 154): The water was full of bubbles and foam; it looked like the fizziest drink in the world had been shaken up and poured all around me.

MY THOUGHTS: Aimed at ages 8 and up (I would suggest it was more suitable for slightly older) just as I enjoyed reading this as an adult I know I would have LOVED reading it as a girl.

The fifth book in the series, though there were several references to the previous books (which I admit to finding intriguing) this is no way marred my enjoyment of this the latest story.

Great fun and wonderfully magical, On one level Emily Windsnap And The Land Of The Midnight Sun is an enchanting yet simple tale all about the power of friendship and trust and yet on another level it is also about consequences.

A true modern day heroine, I adored Emily's humour and gutsy determination and found her relationship with fellow half-mer Aaron so sweet, her friendship with Shona the stuff most girls dream of.

KEEP IT OR NOT?: Received courtesy of a giveaway by Vivenne at SERENDIPITY REVIEWS  I shall be passing this on to a younger reader.

Sounds like a cute series and I do love the cover. I don't know about a book aimed at 8 year-olds talking about boyfriends.
