Stranded, Stormy's Adventure
Written by Mary H. Wright
Illustrated by C.A. Guire



Stranded, Stormy's Adventure is based on the true story of Stormy, an 18-month-old bottlenose dolphin who stranded on the Texas Gulf Coast. In this exciting picture book for readers 6 to 9, young Stormy gets separated from his mother, tangles with hungry sharks, and is finally rescued by strange creatures called "humans."


DolphinStranded will appeal to readers of any age who love dolphins. Information on how to help stranded marine mammals is skillfully incorporated into the entertaining and engaging text. But even if readers never encounter a stranded marine mammal on the beach, they will certainly delight in Wright's gripping tale and Guire's entrancing watercolors. Profits from the sale of Stranded, Stormy's Adventure support the Texas Marine Mammal Stranding Network. Stormy is alive and well today thanks to their rapid response and diligent care.

Stranded, Stormy's Adventure is published on behalf of the Texas Marine Mammal Stranding Network. Marketing efforts for this title include the designation of March as official "Dolphin Awareness Month" and March 18 as "Stormy Day."

In honor of Stormy and all stranded mammals, the Texas Marine Mammal Stranding Network will be sending the author and TMMSN outreach docents to schools, malls, aquariums, and bookstores. DolphinPresentations will include readings by the author, mock dolphin rescues, discussions that allow children to touch and feel real dolphin bones, and tons of deep sea secrets.
