Here's a chapter book (aimed at grades one to four) that opens a new series, The World of Emily Windsnap by Liz Kessler, illustrated emotively by Joanie Stone.

Emily and her mother live on a houseboat and Emily longs to venture into the ocean like the other kids, but mom says it's too dangerous and she's never learned to swim. Then her school offers swimming lessons.

Emily is excited to start, but her body starts to change in the water. The ocean calls her. So she sneaks out at night, splashes into the waves - and turns into a mermaid! Soon she makes a new friend, Shona, who shares a friendship pebble with her.

As this initial episode ends after Emily's discovery, she has 'a feeling the adventures had only just begun!'
