Customer Review

on 17 December 2012
This is a lovely piece of work. The writing is beautiful; poetic. The images are so vivid, so striking, I felt I was there with the author. On one occasion an otter swims towards the writer as she wades chest deep in a river, another time an owl falls out of the night sky to grab a mouse and wakes her from her sleep beneath the stars. The book is endearingly funny in parts, on one occasion the writer tries on a pair of waterproof trousers which she finds on a hedge. The book is varied and never hangs around too long before moving on to something equally interesting. It's well researched and informed. Through the writer's search for otters the reader learns of the state of otters, rivers and the countryside in Britian, and although the book is educational it never reads like a text book. Facts and concerns for their well being are skillfully merged into the author's fascinating quests to find otters, which when they do appear, seem to appear by magic. In my opinion this is a great book.
