Venus Among the Fishes by Elizabeth Hall and Scott O’Dell

venus1It’s not often you come across a book written from the point of view of a sea creature. Imagine the research, time, and capability it must take to express how the animal thinks, performs, and lives. Elizabeth Hall and Scott O’Dell managed to deliver it all beautifully. Enter the blue world of a  dolphin, Coral, and her journey across the ocean to protect her pod. She encounters the dangers of dolphin-eating killer whales, scarce food, and  fishing nets, all while learning about the greatest danger of all; humans. I relished this unique novel, as its imagery allowed me to swim along side Coral in her adventure with everlasting excitement in 143 pages.
