The Lovereading4Kids comment
Bestselling Gill Lewis’s new story tells of the amazing, life-affirming powers of dolphins. Kara’s life is in a mess; her mum has disappeared, she is in trouble at school and her father is about to sell their beloved boat in order to pay off his debts. Within her tight knit fishing community there is also trouble as catches get scarcer and greed pushes the locals into taking action which will damage the seabed forever. Brought up by her mum to fight for the conservation of all wildlife and dolphins in particular, Kara, helped by her new friend Felix, takes on all comers in this passionate and lyrical story about the power of the creatures in the sea, the sea itself and the desperate need to protect it from destruction.
Shortlisted for the Key Stage 2 category of Brilliant Books, Oldham Schools’ Book Award.
White Dolphin by Gill Lewis
'The white dolphin is a sign that Mum's out there ...' When they first meet, Kara and Felix can't stand each other. But on discovering an injured dolphin calf on the beach they know they must work together to save it. Now friends, they set out to find the truth behind the disappearance of Kara's mother, and to protect the nearby reef. But powerful people don't want them to succeed. And with the odds stacked against them, how can Kara and Felix make their voices heard?
