When eight-year-old Saroya loses her mother, her usually absent father takes her on a cruise for her birthday, which he forgets to celebrate. Devastated and very seasick, Saroya falls off the ship trying to catch a locket that once belonged to her mother. She is rescued by a dolphin, who takes her to the magical Animia Island, where she meets Josephine, a stuffed puppet; her son, Little Joe; Calista the conch; Jonbl the baseball glove; and Spoon. They, among others, were all unwanted and have come to life.

If you could sum up The Dolphin Princess in three words, what would they be?

fantastic journey mesmerized

What was one of the most memorable moments of The Dolphin Princess?

I think the the relationship with the Animates on Animia Island,

What does Justine Eyre bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

I can listen while I drive or walk. She brought all the characters to life for me.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

It took me two sittings.. I wanted to finish in one.

Any additional comments?

I listened to "The Dolphin Princess" on audible.com. It was a fantastic journey, brilliantly written and voiced. I was mesmerized from the beginning to the end. I am an adult female! This is for all ages.

I sure hope that these characters have a chance to come to live in an animated film. Everyone will get to meet the Animates on Animia Island, "Spoons", a spoon who wants to spoon anyone who needs to be comforted. Or "Elyphant" the stuffed elephant, "The Domino Family" and "Sorrowful Sad Sally", a sad sweet doll. And so many more.

In pitch-perfect voices, Kathryn Stockett creates three extraordinary women whose determination to start a movement of their own forever changes a town, and the way women - mothers, daughters, caregivers, friends - view one another. A deeply moving novel filled with poignancy, humor, and hope, The Help is a timeless and universal story about the lines we abide by, and the ones we don't.
