Happy Wednesday, everyone! I am celebrating this beautiful summer day with Liz Kessler. She dropped by Watch. Connect. Read. to chat with me about Emily Windsnap, Sarah Gibb's illustrations, Poppy, and school libraries. I wrote the words in red, and she wrote the words in black. Thank you, Liz!
Emily Windsnap and Aaron have the adventure of their lives in this one!
Did you know Emily Windsnap and the Ship of Lost Souls is the first of my Emily Windsnap books to be published on both sides of the Atlantic at the same time?
When I was Emily Windsnap’s age I used to be quite naughty, and had quite a taste for adventure myself. Which meant I often got into trouble!
Sarah Gibb’s illustrations in Emily Windsnap and the Ship of Lost Souls are I think the best of all my books.
Poppy is my dog, and is the best Dalmatian in the world, and is cute and cuddly and lovely, and loves to eat carrots!
School libraries are really, really important and wonderful things, as are the librarians who run them!
Mr. Schu, you should have asked me which of my other books you should read if you like Emily Windsnap? And I would tell you to try out the Philippa Fisher series, and my latest standalone book, Has Anyone Seen Jessica Jenkins?
Borrow Liz Kessler's books from your school or public library. Whenever possible, please support independent bookshops.
