Product Description

About the Author

Jill Tomlinson Jill Tomlinson never intended to be a writer. She trained as an opera singer, and then decided to have a family whilst her voice matured. But illness intervened, and she had to find another outlet for her energies. She started on a journalism course, and by the third lesson decided she wanted to write for children. So she did! Jill Tomlinson's animal stories are much-loved and have been best-selling children's books for nearly four decades.

For those of you who have read The owl who was afraid of the dark and know her style this is a must! For those who have never read her books, this will certainly get you hooked.
She writes in a very simple style, and the creatures in the story are delightful and whimsical. A must for all those who love animals. The books are light hearted and fun and perhaps they might remind you of your own little ones!! A good book for those who can read a little as no doubt the story will encourage them to progress. A good all round book, loved by me and my daughther!

Pat is a young sea otter who is just as curious as my 7 year old daughter, and this book was a good easy read for her with plenty of well drawn black and white illustrations. Playing among the sea kelp close to her mother Pat meets Bobby, a boy otter little older than her, who teaches her all about surviving in her home, about feeding, storms, sharks and killer whales. Still she wants to know more, so he takes her to meet Gaffer, an old otter who tells her about men and how they used to hunt otters. But then the food begins to run out and Bobby and Pat begin to lose weight and are found on the beach by a man who takes them to a strange house. Although a little didactic at times this is in the end a heartwarming story of a species pushed to endangered species status by the action of mankind, and the few members of that species who care enough to do something about it, and the story of a little otter growing up.

Another lovely story by Jill Tomlinson. Great story about an Otter who gets rescued by humans,a story told from a very different view point. Helps give children an idea of Sea Otters life, so is information giving as well as being a story. I certainly learn t about these lovely creatures.

I love the owl who was afraid of the dark so thought I'd try this to read to my 6 year old boy. It's a much longer story but is brilliant and an excellent insight into the world of sea otters. I fell in love with the main character and it had both of us in tears as it was sooo cute and such a lovely ending......

Our six year old daughter likes otters so the book has a little more relevance. Regardless, the story is good and the pictures good too.
