As a young dolphin grows, he leaves his mother and goes off with older dolphins to feed. Sometimes his life is quiet and fish are plentiful, but at other times the fish seem to be hiding and killer whales lurk in the waters. The story, which conveys little sense of drama, is accompanied by photographs. The text's short, choppy sentences are easy to read and provide simple facts about dolphins. A picture glossary is appended. Copyright 2001 Horn Book Guide Reviews
