The Otter

Animal Lives

Kingfisher

Down among the weeds and pebbles of the river bed, the otter is swimming home. Fast as a fish, nimble as an eel, she moves with joy through the water. Like the otter itself, the text of this informative story moves with poetic grace, offering children a privileged look at the life of this appealing and elusive riverbank animal. Discover how long it can stay under water before coming up for air, how its webbed feet and long sleek body make it such a rapid swimmer, and how it keeps its young safe from predators! Richly detailed artwork and an absorbing text make this an excellent gift or a treasured addition to any child's wildlife library.
