Encantado: Pink Dolphin of the Amazon

"Naturalist Sy Montgomery traveled to South America to satisfy her curiosity about the mysterious pink dolphins called encantado, or 'enchanted.' She met with locals and experts to gather information, and she made several valiant efforts to locate the encantado herself. In the end, however, the creatures remained elusive. (In fact, the only clear photos of an encantado are of a dolphin in a Pittsburgh zoo.) So, instead of a traditional animal study, children are treated to a captivating travelogue, complete with numerous color photos of the people and places that incorporates political, environmental, and zoological aspects of the region." — Booklist
