Cover Alert: Emily Windsnap and the Land of the Midnight Sun

Mermaids AND an Alaskan setting? Oh man! How could anything be better? Seriously.

If you've ever been the land of midnight sun, then you know how magical it is. The mirror like stillness of the azure colored water reflecting the towering glaciers from above is breathtaking. Now Liz Kessler is making Alaska the setting of the 6th book in her middle grades Emily Windsnap mermaid series.

The book will release in the UK in September 2012, but won't make its way to the US until Spring 2013.



Emily Windsnap and the Land of the Midnight Sun (Emily Windsnap #5)


Emily and Aaron are sent on a top secret mission by King Neptune. The king has been having nightmares he doesn't understand and he knows only that Emily and Aaron must go to the Land of the Midnight Sun to avoid catastrophe. But when the friends arrive in this icy world of mountains and glaciers, they uncover a mystery more dangerous than they ever imagined. With the help of her best friends and a brave heart can Emily survive and fulfil her mission?
 
 


 
I also think it's interesting that this is the only book in the series (so far) that does not feature a mermaid on the cover. Maybe there will be a different cover for the US book that will feature the tell-tale whimsical mermaid that I love (I sure hope so at least).

WTF is what I was thinking the second I saw this cover! No mermaid tale, very different style than what I am used to. I am so curious to see if there will be a new cover for the US. Either way, it's lovely!

I know! This book doesn't look anything like the others in the series. I actually had to do a double take. I think I would really like to see a mermaid in Alaska. Maybe with a polar bear or something? Ok, I'm obsessed, but really... there needs to be a tail on this cover!

Heather,

I cannot believe you haven't seen this series! It's been around for ages! But then again, I probably wouldn't know about it either had I not bought some of the books for my classroom. Having two boys keeps me out of the girly book club.
