Product Description

Review

'Daniel Allen gives a captivating account of our changing relationship with the otter - once persecuted, now adored.' --BBC Wildlife Magazine

'[a] fine furry paean' --The Guardian

'Otter is the most brilliant mix of facts ancient and modern about the otter species and its vulnerability to man's seemingly insatiable need to hunt the poor animal for reasons other than survival. I am sure the book will help to ensure that the hunting of otters will never return to this country - and I hope other lands will follow this example . . . A fascinating and illuminating book.'
--Virginia McKenna OBE

'Did you know that the otter is J K Rowling's favourite animal? Or that the earliest evidence of its existence dates back 20 million years? Or that the fur of the sea otter is the densest in the animal kingdom? All these and numerous other intriguing snippets of otter lore are contained within a beautifully presented volume as charming and captivating as its subject matter . . . Printed on high-quality paper with gorgeous illustrations on nearly every page . . . you will love this one.' --Daily Mail

The only thing I knew about Otters before reading this was that , they lived in Holts and were quite cute. This book tells all you need to know about an interesting and elusive creature. Who knew that once they were mistaken for things as strange as Leopards and even a Brontosaur? Nicely presented book too. Look forward to reading more in this series.

Purchased this after reading the good review in the Guardian. Well what can be said about Terry Nutkin's "favorite" animal?! Never knew this enchanting animal had such history behind it. The author does an excellent job of keeping keeping the book accessible and interesting for the layman. Lovely colour photographs and beautiful illustrations make this more than just a collection of "facts". I look forward to reading more from the Animal series.

If you want to know about otter ecology, behaviour etc. you'll have to look somewhere else.
Loads of interesting stuff on otter hunting and history but this wasn't what I was looking for . I skimmed through my copy and resold as I didn't think I'd look at it again.
