Default Funny Typos

On re-reading Dolphins, I spotted a typo in chapter 10 that I hadn't noticed before.

Readis is discovered at Aivas' terminal looking at records of the first dragons "as small as large runner beans"!

Probably a Spell-Checker mistake --- "runnerbeasts" --- that word doesn't exist. Try "runner beans".
