Overview

‘The Girl Who Dreamt Of Dolphins’ is the first book in the Dolphin Child trilogy about Lucy Parr and Spirit. ‘Dolphin Child’ is the second. A few months after she saves Spirit's life, Lucy is surprised but grateful that her father allows her to stay with her aunt Bethany down in Cornwall during the summer holidays. She is able to spend real time with Spirit who, like her, is learning to overcome the loss of his own mother.

Observed one morning by a strange boy while Lucy swims with dolphins, she spots him later the same day being bullied by a group of local kids. When Paul tells Lucy he knows about a dolphin trapped in a secret lagoon, she doesn’t know whether to believe him, but her recurring dream of lonely dolphin trapped in murky waters troubles her.

When Lucy discovers the disturbing story of an eighteen-century Dolphin Child called Susan Penhaligon, Lucy begins to understand why Paul’s mother is so unfriendly to her. At the same time Spirit’s discovery of a pod with human names makes him wonder what really happened to the children that Susan Penhaligon led out to sea that day.

Lucy and Paul become joined in their quest to save the lone dolphin in the lagoon. Will Paul’s desire to escape the local bullies and to become a Dolphin Child too lead to a tragic repetition of Susan Penhaligon’s fate? What is the link between the trapped dolphin and Spirit? Read this compelling adventure to find out.

Meet the Author

Hello, my name is James Carmody. I am the author of 'The Girl Who Dreamt of Dolphins' and 'Dolphin-Child'. Both books are part of the Dolphin-Child Trilogy that I am writing about a girl called Lucy Parr and the special ability she has to communicate with a dolphin called Spirit.I was born in 1967 and so am in my mid forties . I live in London with my wife and daughter. I was inspired to write about dolphins when we visited Zanzibar (off the coast of Tanzania) in the summer of 2010. We went on a dolphin watching trip one day from a small village down the coast from Stone Town.I thought that this would be an amazing experience in which we swam with dolphins who would come up to us and greet us. Instead there were any number of tourist boats pursuing a pod of dolphins. Every time dolphins would surface, the boats would all buzz over to them them and all the tourists would pile into the water to be able to say that they had swum with dolphins.I felt rather uncomfortable about the whole experience and felt that we were harassing the dolphins more than communing with them. Afterwards I thought, 'What if it really were possible to communicate with dolphins?'
