Praise

“This superb book focuses on the dolphin–hunting, communication, intelligence, and more. Pringle skillfully introduces vocabulary and occasionally directs readers to focus on selected illustrations or a sentence mentioned earlier. Henderson’s paintings clarify and extend the text…Useful for readers interested in wildlife and as a mentor text for young writers.” – School Library Journal

“One can never have enough dolphin books to satisfy young readers. Pringle’s ability to smoothly incorporate fascinating facts into his narrative explaining the basics of dolphin types, anatomy, and lifestyles pulls students into this storied work of nonfiction. The animals are never anthropomorphized, and all information is drawn from experts. Lovely, large watercolor and pencil illustrations…enhance and help students visualize the information while captions and labels provide added clarity. Along with pleasure reading, this title is excellent for student reports as well as being perfect for teaching text elements.” – School Library Connection

“The latest book in the dependable Strange and Wonderful series opens with ‘If you were a young dolphin,’ and page by page, the text and illustrations work together beautifully to help readers understand these animals better. Well attuned to points brought up in the text, Henderson’s graceful watercolor-and-pencil illustrations offer close-up views of dolphins in action. A lively, informative introduction to dolphins.” – Booklist
