The Tail of Emily Windsnap

by Liz Kessler

This is a great book with a girl who' s so afraid of water that she never took a bath ( just showers) and never went swimming--but she lives on a boat!!! So Emily begs her mom for swim lessons, and her mom gives in, but then something weird happens.

This is such an awesome book! I liked the first one the best, and the other two were pretty good.

Mary W. and Ima, please note that the Emily Windsnap series is the best series there is! I cannot believe that you guys don't like it! How do I express my anger? No offence guys, it's just that I loved the books. But I can't believe you are SELLING the best books there are!!

@ "Vary Agerd Marg": Actually, it's a matter of opinion. If you liked the Emily Windsnap books, then by all means I'm not trying to infringe upon your rights to do so. I have no particular problem with the books myself, I just think they're slightly unintelligently written, unoriginal mind candy. But hey, if you like them, that's great. Technically there is no "best book," because as I said it's a matter of opinion. Of course, it's *your* opinion that these are the "best," and I totally respect that. I know Ima does, as well.

Mary W., please dont criticize my spelling. And also please don't talk to me like I'm a little kid. And Ima, I'm sorry if I offended you in any way. OK, I'll try the Indigo series. But i cant even remember the name. I'm sorry.

We weren't  judging you for liking the books, we just don't like them ourselves. I really don't understand why your angry. We have the right to our own opinions, don't we?

Besides, it's not like I'm throwing them away. I'm letting someone else read them! 

Again, we don't mind if you liked the books, we'd just really appreciate it if you didn't hold our opinions against us.

And by the way, you should read the Ingo books.


No more "screaming" in all caps, guys. It starts the threads on a downhill course. People are allowed to disagree, but everyone is to be treated calmly and respectfully. If you post a comment, it's always possible others will disagree. As long as comments aren't mean, no one should get angry.

Please don't treat me like a little kid. You're not that much older than me.
