Dolphins and Porpoises By Guy Belleranti Porpoises and dolphins are fascinating and beautiful sea creatures. They are in the group of whales called toothed whales.

Many people think dolphins and porpoises are fish, but this is simply not true. They are mammals, just like dogs, cats, horses.

“[This book] contains many good illustrations of the majority of extant species of whales, dolphins, and porpoises (cetaceans). It also provides a general overview of the systematics and evolution of cetaceans as a group and very brief summaries of anatomy, feeding, life history, range, and conservation issues for each species.

This book would be for a more advanced reader as it uses some advanced vocabulary and has more words than the average picture book. This would also be god for animal lovers as it gives so much information of these specific animals and marine life.4/5.
