Format: Paperback
This is a wonderful book that can open children's eyes to the appeal of non-fiction writing.

As the title implies, it consists of nine true dolphin stories, each of which documents an actual dolphin that had some sort of interesting interaction with humans (or with other dolphins while under human observation).

One of the most interesting stories to me (and one of the shortest) was about Bimbo, a pilot whale that began acting aggressively towards the dolphins in an aquarium. Worried for the safety of the dolphins, especially the baby dolphins, the director drained out some of the water, so that Bimbo was effectively stranded. When Bimbo began making distress calls, the smaller dolphins came to him and comforted him in this hour of need. When the water level was restored, Bimbo had been cured of his bullying ways, and treated the dolphins with kindness. What a great story!

Whichever story grabs your fancy the most, you will be introduced in a very engaging way to one of the most interesting species on the planet. Children will be motivated to learn more about dolphins, and possibly about the natural world in general.

Long before the internet or cable TV we relied solely on our imagination, & Gilligan's Island, The Beverly Hillbillies, and a couple of other fun TV shows.....along with that was the Public Library & of course the scholastic books we could buy for a few cents-where I first was introduced to this book, Nine True Dolphin Stories, MY FAVORITE CHILDHOOD BOOK. Thank you Amazon for reuniting me with it.....my dad passed away at age 90 last year and loved reading these stories...(he would forget we just read them & it brought great childhood memories to me, also)....I have ordered a few copies from you which have been BIG hits with the recipients!! I've taught hundreds of kids and adults to swim in my lifetime (& swam with dolphins & sharks) I'd like to think this book was a great influence!! Thank you so much for selling it Amazon and please thank the writer for writing this charming book!

Thank you so much for fast delivery and for the book being in good shape. The only thing I don't like is the packaging. I think it should be in a sturdier envelope with cardboard to keep it from bending. I will definitely purchase more books from you in the future though because you have always been on time with your orders, which I really appreciate:))

I love dolphins! This is a great book full of stories just about those very creatures! Read about Polerus Jack, Opo, Spray, Bimbo, and much, much more! Read with your friends, or by yourself. (I read it with my friends) it's just a great book!
