OPO THE DOLPHIN AND OTHER STORIES
Author: April Amonte
Genre: Juvenile

Registry #: ygm005

 

Stories in this collection include Opo The Dolphin, The Raindrop Who Became Becoming, The Island of A Thousand Rains, The Quiet Camel, The Ghost of Zager Mountain, Zero The Great Actor, all lending themselves to illustration.

The lead story tells of Opo, a young dolphin that for all his young life wonders who and what he really is, and what he was created for. He believes that not all things have been revealed to him by his parents or the rest of his universe. The murky depths do have mysteries in them, and a dolphin's life is not all that it seems.

The mysteries surrounding Opo come full cycle when he learns that a dolphin's life is incomplete until he has saved a sailor from drowning.

The Quiet Camel tells of a camel being delivered, from the harshest of treatment, by a young Arab boy who faces up to stern and severe punishment for being sensitive to the plight of one camel.

The Ghost of Zager Mountain is an old, old story of pirates and treasure being buried on the New England coast, and the haunting escapade of an Indian maiden who sets a curse on a pirate ship after her young brother is interred with buried treasure.

The other stories have similar juvenile interest.
