Ripple the dolphin just moved to a new aquarium and is excited to make some friends! But as she swims around, she notices the water is still and quiet. The eels have no zing. The neon fishes don’t glow. The seahorses aren’t horsing around. Everyone’s too afraid of a mean shark named Snark!

Ripple is determined to show her new friends that they shouldn’t be afraid—it’s all about mindset. They can choose to be happy!

But just as the aquarium begins to liven up, Snark the shark shows up ready to prove Ripple wrong. Can Ripple get Snark to 
smile too?

Bestselling authors and happiness experts Shawn Achor and Amy Blankson invite you 
to dive in and learn how you can spread joy to those around you with Ripple and 
her friends.

A story about choosing happiness and the ripple effect of a positive mindset.
