Dance, Dolphin, Dance
A California Ocean Adventure
By Patricia MacCarthy
Follow Dolphin on a fast-paced adventure that nearly lands him in the jaws of a shark!
Out in the ocean, deep down in the kelp forest, Dolphin dances with sea lions. But suddenly he meets a Great White Shark… and then a Killer Whale… Dance, Dolphin, dance for your life! A dramatic underwater chase, set in the Pacific Ocean, with 36 sea creatures and birds to spot, from the Red Octopus and Blue Cannonball Jellyfish to the Crowned Squirrelfish and the Sea Otter. See if you can find them all!

"MacCarthy's text is delightfully alliterative and onomatopoeic. Her swirling paintings modulate in palette to suit the mood. An exciting marine adventure just right for reading aloud."
