It's June - winter in South Africa, and Martine and her grandmother are enjoying a cold but beautiful walk along the beach when they find a stranded, dying dolphin. Martine uses her gift of healing to help it back to the ocean, but it's only the latest in a series of inexplicable beachings of dolphins and whales - and the start of a brand new adventure for Martine.

After a last stolen midnight ride on her beloved white giraffe, Jemmy, Martine's class is off on an amazing school trip to the islands of Mozambique to witness the legendary sardine run.

It's a trip that goes drastically wrong, and Martine, with close friend Ben, finds herself swimming in shark-infested waters, marooned on an uninhabited island, and suddenly at the centre of mysterious submarine goings-on as she tries to save a pod of 100 dolphins from certain death.

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Sara | 2/11/2014

    " This book can really suck into everything that is going on in the main characters world. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Abby | 2/10/2014

    " I loved The White Giraffe, and this book, its sequel, was a big letdown for me. Not as well written, not as engaging, and too many "issues" crammed into a slim volume. But the kids in my sixth grade book group tell me that the next sequels in the series are much better, and worthy of the The White Giraffe. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Jasmine | 2/8/2014

    " A girl and her six friends get thrown overboard and dolphins come and save them. They take them to an island and their, they must learn how to survive while also saving the dolphins. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Maitha | 2/5/2014

    " I enjoyed this children book, a sequel to White Giraffe. It's a good book for children between the ages 9+ . The language is quite advanced though, so the child should be an avid reader. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Jenna | 1/29/2014

    " This book is a sequel to the White Giraffe. It is a story about a young girl named Martin who goes on a school field trip to watch the sardine run. They run into a big storm and are stranded on an island. This book is filled with lots of adventure. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Audrey Foo | 12/10/2013
