Darcy Dolphin and the Best Birthday Ever!

Written by Sam Watkins

Illustrated by Vicky Barker

Part of the Darcy Dolphin Series

Darcy Dolphin and the Best Birthday Ever! Synopsis

Clarice Bean meets Finding Dory in this laugh-out-loud diary set under the sea! Darcy Dolphin and friends are back for some more underwater adventures! In the third book of the series Darcy joins the Sea Trouts, whose motto is 'Lend a Fin'. But Darcy's attempts to be helpful don't exactly go swimmingly... and soon there's chaos at the pet exercise class, an extremely grumpy resident at the Retired Sharks home and a plankton on the run! Can Darcy sort it all out and still have time to throw Ozzie Octopus the best birthday party ever? The third in a brilliantly funny new illustrated fiction series for boys and girls aged 6 years +. Perfect for fans of The Unbelievable Top Secret Diary of Pig by Emer Stamp, Barry Loser, the Wigglesbottom Primary series by Pamela Butchart and the Daisy books. Sam Watkins has worked as a bookseller, editor and publisher, before becoming a children's books writer and illustrator. She is the author of the Creature Teacher series with OUP, as well as Nick Knight: Super Sub! and Puss in Football Boots, both published by Franklin Watts. Creature Teacher was shortlisted for the Heart of Hawick Children's Book Award in 2016. Sam lives in Worthing with her family and a yellow campervan named Daphne. Vicky Barker is an award-winning illustrator based in Liverpool. She illustrated Real-life Mysteries (bSmall), written by Susan Martinau, which won a Blue Peter Book Award in 2017, as well as the Fish Fingers children's series and The Catsup High Detective Agency for Catnip Books. Vicky loves doodling new characters and is partial to a bit of screen-printing in her spare time.
