Reviews

"An exemplary addition to an always thought-provoking series."
--Kirkus, starred review

"Mann not only provides excellent examples of scientific thinking through the formulation and testing of hypotheses, she also serves as an authentic and engaging role model for girls considering careers in science. . . [An] affecting and vividly photographed work of nonfiction."
--Booklist

"Readers come away with an amazing, if sometimes blurred vision of a culture different from their own . . . A challenging, attractive eye-opener."
--School Library Journal, starred review

"There's no shortage of fascinating science in the breezy and engaging narrative. . . While being deliberately anti-mythical about dolphins, the book conveys the wonder of learning more about the intricacy of another species, and readers will be won over by both the dolphins and the sceince."
--Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books, starred review

"The detailed descriptions of the day-to-day activities of the dolphins--all of whom are given names and have distinct personalities--provide a window into the practice of animal behavior studies."
--The Horn Book Magazine
