Dance, Dolphin, Dance

By Patricia MacCarthy
Illustrated by Patricia MacCarthy

Follow Dolphin on a fast-paced adventure that nearly lands him in the jaws of a shark!

Dance, Dolphin, Dance is set in the Western Gulf of California. It follows a Bottlenose Dolphin as he dips, dives and swirls in the towering Kelp in his search for food crossing paths with sea lions, a seal, a giant mantra ray, a grey whale and other sea creatures. But then a Great White Shark appears – and a Killer Whale. Will Dolphin escape? Dance, Dolphin, Dance is the second book in Patricia McCarthy's Wilderness series, following Run, Elephant, Run (Otter-Barry Books, 2017).

  • Fantastic introduction to endangered wilderness habitats
  • Stresses the importance of conservation, with “spotting” activity at the back of each book
  • Stunning illustrations combine child-appeal with naturalism
