Book Review – Dolphin Tale

A movie tie-in (Scholastic) ISBN:  9780545348423

When a dolphin named Winter loses her tail in a crab trap, it’s up to a young boy named Sawyer and the staff at the Clearwater Marine Aquarium to help her survive against the odds.

Sawyer is a withdrawn boy, but as his bond with Winter deepens, he starts to come into his own. Soon he starts to have the idea of a prosthetic tail for the dolphin – and gets the support of the whole community.

Dolphin Tale is a tie-in to the 3-D movie of the same name. It’s an ideal bedtime story for a boy or girl, especially if they’re familiar with the movie.

Kids aged 8-10 could well manage to read it on their own. Great story, great reading.
