I've owned this book forever, and I always enjoy returning to it once every year or so. Its a quick read, but absolutely delightful and anyone who likes animals will enjoy reading it.

Coral and her brother Snapper have set off to look for their brother Silver. Killer whales have been attacking their dolphin pod and they need his help to save everyone. But their travels aren't easy, dangers lurk around every corner and when Coral is captured by humans, she worries for her brother's safety. But mir
Ages ago a student bought me this book at a book fair because he knew I loved oceans and the sea. it was a great gift that took me almost 15 years to read. Written years ago before all the Sea World controversy, it should call onto question anything that contains these beautiful creatures of the sea. will be treasured part of my permanent collection.

What a fantastic story. I can just picture cuddled up in bed with my grandbabies reading this story to them. It has adventure, friendship, and it's even a little scary. It focuses on human and dolphin interactions set into a exciting narrative. It's a great read for all.

Recommended to Hillary by: I was given this book as a gift from my mother.
This was such a beautiful story. I read a chapter or two to my nephew every night. we actually finished it a week ago but my internet stopped working.
Loved this book when I was younger.

I don't know what it is about books where the main character is an animal and tells the story but I love it.

This is a great book for younger readers.
