Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal
Gr 3-6A question-and-answer format is skillfully employed to reveal the life cycle and characteristics of a variety of dolphins. The well-organized text first helps readers to define what makes a dolphin a dolphin (and not a fish, a whale, or a porpoise) and then moves on to answer a wide range of questions about the natural history of these fascinating creatures. Finally, the book introduces 15 species of dolphins, many of which are little known. The common as well as unusual questions are interwoven among numerous clear, bright, full-color photographs. Informative and understandable diagrams, along with X-ray photographs of dolphin bone structure, help to flesh out explanations. A welcome addition for young browsers and researchers alike.Lisa Wu Stowe, Great Neck Library, NY
