Picture Book Review: Otter and Odder

Posted by: TracieP | Posted on: Feb 09 2013

Otter, like all otters, eats fish; but one evening, Otter unexpectedly falls in love with his would-be dinner: a fish named Myrtle (or "Gurgle," if you prefer). As Otter and Myrtle get to know one another, Otter is forced to choose between the way of his fellow otters and the way of his heart.

Otter and Odder is charmingly illustrated with dreamy, child-like washes of watercolor and crayon.This sweet and thoughtful story about the power of love and hope is just right for sharing with your favorite young Valentine.
