Based on the hit 3-D movie, this easy-to-read true story is illustrated with stills from the film. When a dolphin named Winter loses her tail in a crab trap, it's up to a young boy named Sawyer and the staff at Clearwater Marine Aquarium to help her survive against the odds. Sawyer is quiet at first, but his special connection with Winter soon brings the boy out of his shell. One day, after visiting his cousin at an army hospital, Sawyer gets an idea to have a doctor there make Winter a prosthetic tail. This proposal inspires the staff at the aquarium and fills Sawyer with the hope that Winter may one day swim again. Sure enough, she does! This real-life story has become an inspiration to people with special needs throughout the world.
