Wild Dolphin Rider
Through the magic of desire, Sean discovers he can speak with Mari, a young dolphin mother, who takes him aboard her back for a day on the ocean. But just beyond the harbor jetty, Mari s pod is scattered by a tuna fleet, and Sean soon wonders if either he or the pod will survive to tell the tale. Searching for Mari s missing son, they confront the dangers of the sea from lost drift nets to lightning storms and readers learn how different life is for wild dolphins from those in captivity."

Praise for Oscar the Herring Gull, previous title from Donovan and Spellman: 1- A good animal story filled with natural history facts animal behavior, field observation and human impact on ecology woven seamlessly inspiring children to want to learn more. Spellman s illustrations are accurate enough to be anatomically correct with enough whimsy to inspire imagination! -Wendy W. Lull, President, Seacoast Science Center. 2- An endearing and engaging story, sure to delight younger audiences with a true-to-life glimpse into the life of gulls. Educators should flock to this wonderful book! Mark Wiley, Assistant Director for Education, N.H. Sea Grant Program. "
