Synopsis

With a mind of her own and a knack for creating chaos, Aster the dolphin was often the center of attention at the Aquarium. That is, until she had Bob.
When he was born, Bob was a scrawny dolphin, with an unusual, comet-shaped mark on his drooping dorsal fin. Like hs mother, Bob was ornery, and he stubbornly struggled with health problems to survive. He, too, loved to jump high in the air and perform dolphin tricks. One day he jumped into more trouble than any other dolphin in the history of the Aquarium.
Based on true dolphin stories, Twig C. George's warm and humorous novel is filled with dolphin antics and the pleasures of working with marine animals at an aquarium.
