An Adventure of Teen Self-Discovery Driven by A Desire to Help Animals Have Better lives
Metro Boston, MA, 7/18/2018 — Four teenage storytellers, (three from Cape Cod, one from Newburyport) offer all readers, but particularly those aged 10 to 14, an adventure in animal ethics entitled, The Dolphin Rescue. In this lively tale, four teen girls with special powers attempt to help change a dolphin fishing drive in Japan. They hope to allow residents to see that dolphins living in their community deserve to be treated with value. After a calamity seizes the town, the girls, local
community members, and dolphins save the day. As a result, the town’s people begin to evolve their thinking about the need to balance human need with the treatment of the dolphins.
The book, the first in a four book series entitled “Miniworld Adventures”, with its sixty-four color illustrations, received important validation for its manga-style mix of story and edgy illustration. The ten to fourteen-year-old readers are past young children’s fiction but are not interested in young adult novels with high-school issues of sexuality, substance use, and violence. A large number of kids in this niche are reluctant readers who are ready for important topics. The style of The Dolphin Rescue offers an exciting tale but with plenty of pictures to interest the reader to delve deeper into the adventure.
According to librarians, there are few engaging books for reluctant readers, and librarians welcome this new published work for this forgotten niche of readers.
The story also follows a growth in understanding of the teens. They go from empathizing solely with the plight of dolphins, to developing a broader empathy for the struggles of the local townspeople. As the teens learn of the historic precedent for the dolphin hunt ritual and the extreme lack of viable alternative economic opportunity available to the people, they begin to understand that helping to find a solution is complicated. Coming soon, you will find viable alternative economic opportunities to
explore further in the book’s website suggested teaching activities, at www.miniworld.net.
A middle school teacher in Massachusetts, Brian Salmon, shared, “The book offers a message important to our world. I’m making it required reading and encouraging other teachers to do the same.” Tom Campbell of King Printing, the printer of the paperback, The Dolphin Rescue adds “I have worked with over 30,000 authors who have printed and published their books. There have been only 2-3 authors that have been under 18. I have been very impressed by Emily, Lindsey, Sophie and Taylor with their knowledge, passion and drive with this book is extremely rare. I look forward to working with them in
the future and wish the team all the best.”
