Summary
ANIMAL STORIES (CHILDREN'S / TEENAGE). Siblings Maddie and Atticus love living by the sea. Their dad traps lobsters off the coast of Maine. They love helping with the family business and volunteering at the local aquarium. The summer is shaping up to be a super one, for sure. Then one day they spy a pod of dolphins in the cove looking distressed. How will the kids use their knowledge of animals and their awesome problem-solving skills to help the dolphin family get safely back to sea? Perfect for reluctant, challenged, and newly fluent readers, the Animal Planet Adventures chapter book series combines fun animal mysteries with cool nonfiction sidebars that relate directly to the stories, bringing the best of the animal world to young readers. With full-colour illustrations and photographs throughout. Ages 7+

Review
In one of two titles launching the Animal Planet Chapter Books series, Nichols blends fiction and nonfiction as she introduces siblings Maddie and Atticus Cardozo, who attempt to figure out who or what is responsible for upending trash bins throughout their coastal Maine town. As the fast-moving mystery progresses, interspersed photographic pages offer details about aquatic animals, the tides, and other information referenced in the plot; additionally, Langdo contributes full-color cartoon artwork, not seen by PW. Though the mystery turns out to be quite mild, a few tangential events, including the rescue of a trapped dolphin and the near-drowning of the children’s cousin (both of which are neatly resolved), offer dollops of tension. Simultaneously available: Farm Friends Escape! Ages 6–10. (Feb.) --Staff (Reviewed 01/09/2017) (Publishers Weekly, vol 264, issue 02, p)
