He spends the afternoon learning how to do dolphin flips, checking out Donald Dolphin's art murals and realizing that he would like to have a brother or sister too! He discusses this with his mummy over a supper of crabs, oysters and seaweed salad.

"My kids have such a hard time shutting off their brains at night to go to sleep. I've been looking for something to help focus their bedtime attention and help de-stress them from their day. They can't wait to go to bed tonight, so they can listen to their new stories and music. Thank you so much."

"The CD’s have been a great tool for calming the children’s minds and getting them ready for rest, and telling stories of friendships and adventures. Every day as we go to pick a CD to listen to, we get at least one request (usually more!) for “Murray The Shark” and it’s a hit with every child that comes through our doors. We’re extremely glad to have been introduced to these sleeptime stories and are looking forward to hearing more adventures from the underwater friends."
