This was one of my favorites because of how it incorporated details about a culture I was unfamiliar with in southern India and Bangladesh - just like the one in the South American jungle or the Orinoco River delta. Choosing to include unique challenges to that area like poaching and potential flooding gave the story unique character. I am sad that the author(s) chose to end the series with so much of the world to explore but I must admit that the last few before this weren't as entertaining. I think that was partly because the story has such a simple plot that it started to be too predictable. This has been a great series and would be a terrific suggestion for preteens.

I pushed myself through this late at night. It had been on my shelf for a very long time and I finally read it.

Another really good series of books by Lucy Daniels, I was completely in love with these books when I was younger. This series I particularly likes as it was Dolphin based ands they used to be my favourite animal when I was younger.

If you like animals you cannot help but love these books when you are a child.

I didn't really like this book because it was riveting. The plot was a little dull and so were the characters. I thought it had a lack of details. Basicly to me it was boring.
