Published Reviews
Booklist Review: "Experienced wildlife photographer Eszterhas' giant full-page photos of an adorable otter pup and her mother will elicit that treasured awww response from charmed readers. Bringing clarity as well as plenty of fascinating details, the author uses metaphoric language to help readers imagine the newborn pup, whose fluffy, thick fur keeps her from drowning: she floats like a cork until learning to swim at three months. With clear narrative organization, Eszterhas captures significant aspects of a baby otter's first year, including learning to dive and find food, joining with other otters, staying out of danger, and using tools. An appendix with more facts about otters in a bulleted list rounds out this highly readable text. The lack of an index and bibliography limits the book's use beyond a pleasure read, but it truly is that: a pleasure to read and to see.--Austin, Patricia Copyright 2010 Booklist"
