When Bob the dolphin was born, he was small and sickly. No one at the aquarium expected him to survive. But, like his mother, Aster, Bob was stubborn, and he bravely struggled to overcome his health problems. Then, one day, Bob taught himself a new trick--and jumped into more trouble than any other dolphin in the history of the aquarium!

Quotations: "Over the years I have maintained an interest in the natural world. My husband, David Pittenger, is the director of the National Aquarium in Baltimore. My two daughters, Rebecca and Caity, each began visiting the Aquarium when they were two days old, and have made thousands of trips since! When a particularly spunky little dolphin was born at the Aquarium in 1992, I began to see the possibilities of a book which, while telling a story, could teach the children about these amazing creatures. In 1996 A Dolphin Named Bob was published".
Twig C. George married David M. Pittenger in 1982. The marriage produced two children.
