What's This Book About

Publisher Summary

The latest installment in the popular Strange and Wonderful series is an accessible and comprehensive introduction to dolphin species from all over the globe. Filled with fascinating facts and detailed, illuminating artwork, this nonfiction picture book acquaints young readers with dolphin species from around the world—from the well-known bottlenose dolphin to the several species of “blackfish” (including orcas) that most people believe are whales. Author Laurence Pringle’s clear, informative text describes dolphins’ habitats, physiology, communication, intelligence, parenting, eating habits, and much more. The book also discusses conservation and how dolphins can be protected from hunting, pollution, and other threats. Accompanied by Meryl Henderson’s beautiful paintings, this is a perfect STEM title and a great choice for children interested in marine life. The book includes a glossary, index, and further resources.
