Through a young dolphin’s eyes in the vast ocean world, Helene Hesselager O’Barry, wife of Ric O’Barry’s Dolphin Project founder Ric O’Barry and partner with him in freeing dolphins from captivity for more than 20 years, brings her immense experience, empathy and compassion into a heartwarming and at times emotional account of Squee, a fun-loving young dolphin learning from his mother and family members.
Squee’s Great Escape seamlessly blends adventure, the beauty of nature and education in a way that children and adults can identify with in their own lives, while learning about a world under the sea that some may never have the privilege of experiencing.
Wonderful & carefree
Illustrations are gorgeous
Where dolphins swim free
That is what a good book is all about. I highly recommend it for everyone.
