Book Details

"Calling all sea otter fans!" - Kirkus

On a sunny August morning in 2016, a baby sea otter was found washed up on the sand. Orphaned and sick, Rialto was taken to the Seattle Aquarium, where his dedicated caretakers nursed him back to health and taught him how to be an otter. Soon, the charming Rialto was stealing hearts as he played with toys made of ide, swam in his very own pool, ate tasty clams, and floated on his back.

Learn about the rescue--and how you can help to save this endangered species--in Rescuing Rialto, from the Seattle Times reporter and photographer who chronicled this story as it happened. Just as he captured them, Rialto's sure to steal your heart, too.
