Grade 3-4-- In a first-person account, Grover describes a dramatic and emotional encounter with a wild dolphin family needing help off the Atlantic coast of Florida. Three dolphins, two adults and a baby, attract his attention with their clicking and then swim near him until he notices that the baby is bleeding from fishing line tangled around its tail and a hook embedded in its flesh. Grover performs underwater surgery with his diving knife, carefully cutting away the line and removing the hook, thus saving the dolphin from certain death. The baby dolphin's blood in the water attracts two hungry sharks that the large male dolphin dispatches by head-on attacks into the sharks' gills, thus saving the author's life. Two weeks later Grover recognizes the scar on the tail of a young dolphin swimming with a group of dolphins around his boat and experiences great joy at seeing his recovered patient. This a fascinating story, nicely illustrated with drawings in shades of gray, black, and white. It's unfortunate, though, that the author explains his feelings rather than allowing the powerful story to demonstrate them. --Frances E. Millhouser, Reston Regional Library, VA

I don't want to give the story away, but so many intricate details are what will keep this book in your memory, as well as the book's theme.
We all either believe or disbelieve that dolphins are interested in humans, and whether or not dolphins will interact with us in the wild.
This story is of a boy who is swimming in the ocean. He is brought to the area by boat so that he can view the creatures of the sea.
This is where he meets a family of 3 dolphins. So how does this bring them all together in the water? The two species communicated with patience, trust and a great show of love.
I can't tell you how good this book is so you will have to read it for yourself and I recommend it highly for your youngster's reading, even though it has small chapters. There are also illustrations which help bring this book alive. Buy it, as it is so worth it for your child/grandchild!
