A family marooned on an island finds loveable dolphins to help them survive: classic adventure from million-copy-selling Jenny Oldfield.

Shipwrecked near a tiny island in a vast ocean, the Fisher family are guided to safety by a small pod of dolphins. Fleur, Alfie, Mia and their parents must learn to build shelter, find fresh water and hunt for food.

Each of the children forms a special bond with one of the family of dolphins. Fleur adores the fun-loving, tail-walking Jazz. Mia names her dark-grey dolphin friend Stormy. And Alfie is saved from the shipwreck by Pearl, who always looks out for him.

Danger is on the island: from sharks near shore, to a mystery presence on the island itself. Day-to-day survival is everything ... and the dolphins are there to help!

Jenny Oldfield strikes gold in this beautifully illustrated, exciting adventure story, the fourth in the Dolphin Island series.

The full series: Shipwreck, Lost at Sea, Survival, Fire!, Missing, Storm Clouds.

Panic sets in - if Red Star took off into the mountains, there are dangers out there for a lone pony - coyotes, bears, even mountain lions.
