KIRKUS REVIEW

A fictionalized account, based on real events, of a stranded dolphin, Aster, who is nursed back to health at the Maryland State Aquarium, where she subsequently gives birth to Bob. This is a very straightforward relating of events, without much characterization (other than of Aster and Bob), clarity of setting, or subtlety of dialogue. The story will be exciting enough to keep young readers turning the pages, and the details of dolphin communication are informative. George, offspring of Jean Craighead George, debuts with a tale that reveals more about the author's interest in research than it does about any potential narrative skills.
