The previous book focused primarily on fishes, with two whale species. This one focuses on marine mammals, sea cows (mantees and dugongs) and seven species of dolphins world wide. It is essentially a tale of friendly encounters between these species (a little license is used here), showing a few of the great variety of dolphins and their relatives, from river dolphins to open ocean dolphins to shallow water dolphins. All animals are shown in real world ecosystems accompanied by the species they would share a habitat with (example dolphins, tuna, sardines, and shearwaters; or manatees, shrimp, sheepsheads, and snappers). At the end of the book is a review of each dolphin, sea cow, or fish, and a suggestion for the read to (or reader) to find each dolphin, fish, and seacow in the pages of the book. Two of the dolphins are harder to find than the others! The pictures and story will get a smile from even the youngest or oldest audience, though it is fun for both reader and listener.

Poor Buck's Trial is a short fictional story set in the middle twentieth century, about an innocent misunderstanding. The word 'trial' has multiple meanings, and a child (the storyteller) can pick the wrong one. Since the child also loves a dog (Buck), a 'Dog Trial' has special meaning. The story covers both how the child experiences a normal weekend, has a very bad dream, and learns something new. The story is made to be read to younger children, and be read by children 9-14 years in age. Anyone who loves the outdoors, loves fishing, and loves dogs, will find it fun. Note: Any reader will also suffer through my pencil drawings as well, since the story is set before the age of computer graphics!
