Jim is sad because his father's beloved fishing boat, the Sally May, is in desperate need of repair. After Jim alerts the village to help save a beached dolphin, 'Smiler' returns whenever called to take Jim for a ride on his back out to sea.

 

When Jim's friends want to join in, Jim's family decide to put the Sally May to good use by taking visitors on trips to see the dolphins and Jim is happy once again.

 

This is another heartwarming tale from the wonderful Michael Morpurgo, perfectly complemented by beautiful illustrations.
