The Adventures of the Thundering Whales: The Dreaded Weaved Catcher

Author:  Stephen Vadakin
Publisher:  BookSurge, 2009
Pages:  62
Genre:  Animals, Middle Grades

Thunder, Flukie and Sapphire are just three of the animals you will meet in Stephen Vadakin's book The Dreaded Weaved Catcher.  This is the first book in a new series. When these three dolphins explore an old ship they find a strange medallion.  As they are traveling along Thunder gets caught in a net and begins to sink to the bottom where he will surely die.  A flash of the medallion and he finds a bubble around him.  He ends up in an underwater cave where he meets several other ocean animals.  For Thunder to be rescued the animals, some of which are enemies will have to work together.  This was a great story about the many different animals we find in the oceans, how they live and it is also the story of their differences and how they use those differences to help each other.  I can't wait for the others in this series to come out.  Great books to put not only on the shelves in the reading or language arts classroom but also in the science classroom.
