A heartwarming sea otter rescue story.

Washed ashore alone, a tiny sea otter pup needs help! Soon, a rescuer is there, to take her in and keep her warm and fed. The pup faces challenges in her new life without her sea otter family. But with the love and care of her rescuer, she flourishes in her new home. Inspired by the true story of orphaned sea otter Pup 681, who is now named Luna and lives at the Shedd Aquarium in Chicago, this is a heartwarming and hopeful rescue story about family and love.
