This is an auction for DOLPHIN DOLPHIN by Wade Doak.

" On an April day in 1975, a tribe of dolphins interrupted their journey up the east coast of northern New Zealand to frolic in the sea with a boatload of humans. They played games, acting with an indescribable good humor and ease. When the meeting was all over and Wade Doak had talked to his family and friends about it, a teasing thought began to intrude. Was it more than just a game? Were the dolphins ready and willing to meet humans, their peers in intellect, on an equal footing? Did they want to communicate with friends of another culture in the sea?..."
