This book is about a girl named Karana. Karana lives on a small island, called Island of the Blue Dolphins, her Father is the Chief. The mane thing to know is that she gets left behind on the island.

I really liked this book because it is sad and because she has animal friends.
I like that she has animal friends because I wish I had animal friends.

This is one of my favorite books; actually it's very close to being my favorite. Even though this book looks thin when you are reading it it seems as though it is as fat as my table because so many unforgettable things happen. An interesting thing to know is that the Aleuts came to hunt sea otter. My favorite part is when Karana and her dog are in a cave and suddenly sea a giant devil fish outside on the sea, it is actually twice as big as there canoe. If I put this book out of five I would definitely say five out of five.

Old Mr. Sea Otter. Film inspired by The Island of the Blue Dolphins. Sea Otter puppet from paper bag and printed template from Monterey Bay Aquarium. Filmed and edited with iMovie software. Original design by Bellusaurus sui.
