ALA Booklist
From the best-selling authors of Owen & Mzee: The True Story of a Remarkable Friendship (2006) comes another warm, illustrated tale of an animal friendship. Winter, a dolphin with a prosthetic tail, has a life partner, Panama, who is growing very old. Just as the staff at the Clearwater Marine Aquarium is exploring how to find another match for Winter, who would be unable to live in the wild, a young dolphin is rescued off the coast of Florida and brought to Clearwater. After nursing the new arrival, Hope, back to health, the staff gradually introduces her to Winter. This title provides a look at the work of veterinarians as they rescue and save the life of the motherless young animal. Readers will also follow the trainers as they help Hope adapt to life in captivity. Throughout, the vivid photographs show Hope and Winter, alone and interacting with their human helpers. Information about the Clearwater Marine Aquarium is included, as well as a fact sheet about dolphins. The release of the film Dolphin Tale 2 should give this title an extra boost of interest.

Also by Isabella Hatkoff. The authors of Owen & Mzee tell another compelling true wildlife story--this time about rescued orphan dolphin calf Hope. The Clearwater Marine team strategically placed Hope with another rescued dolphin, Winter (from Winter's Tail, which inspired the movie Dolphin's Tale), in hopes that they would develop a friendship and help each other rehabilitate. Large, crisp color photos complement the straightforward text.
