Written for about 3rd grade: Jane and her brother, Chris, spend each summer at their family's cottage on Kings Lake in Michigan in the 1950's. They spend their time swimming and boating, but wonder about a strange man who lives across the road. He is seen coming down to the lake sometimes, but he rarely talks to people. That's why they call him Strange-O. This summer, Chris finds a metal figure of a dolphin in his own family's boathouse and discovers it fits onto their Chris Craft speedboat. The children keep it a secret for fear it will be taken away. Then, during the lakeshore Fourth of July celebration, something with the fireworks goes very wrong. What happens to help the situation shows the children that sometimes, surprisingly, people and things can be tied in together, including a special dolphin figure and a seemingly strange man.
