Адаптированная книга на английском языке «Maisie and the dolphin by Stephen Rabley». Аудиокнига на английском.
Maisie King lives in the Bahamas. She is thirteen years old and likes pop music, reading and swimming. Her mother and father are doctors. They work at the Freeport Animal Hospital. The hospital is next to their home — a blue house by the sea. It is very old, but it is beautiful, and Maisie loves it. Her grandfather loves it, too. He lives with the family.
On Saturdays Maisie and her grandfather often go out in his boat — the Warm Wind. Maisie likes to swim underwater and look at all the beautiful fish.
One day she sees something — it is a piece of wood. There are some letters on it:
“What can that be?” Maisie thinks. “I know! I can ask Grandad.”
She swims back to the Warm Wind. “Grandad! There’s a big piece of wo…” But her grandfather is not listening. He is watching a big, expensive American boat and a dolphin.
“Oh no,” he says. “That boat’s going too fast. The driver can’t see the dolphin. Hey! Stop!!” But it is too late. The boat hits the dolphin and drives away.
Maisie is very angry. She and her grandfather take the dolphin back to Freeport. Her mother is in the garden. She says, “What have you got there? A dolphin?!” Maisie says, “Yes. Can you and Dad help him?” Then she sees the big American boat. “Why is that here?” she asks. Her mother says, “There’s an American in the house with Dad — Carl Flint. I think it’s his boat.”
Maisie runs into the house. She can hear her lather. He is saying, “You want to give me $200,000 for the hospital and this house?!” Carl Flint says, “Yes. I want to build a big hotel here.” Maisie’s father thinks for a moment. “Well, the hospital isn’t doing very well, but… I need a little time.” Carl Flint says to him, “OK — you’ve got four weeks.”
