Utterly Otterly Nightby Mary Casanova
Synopses & Reviews
Little Otter is ready for some action! Rustling leaves call to him. Sweet, spicy air beckons. The moon is as huge and golden as Owland#8217;s eyes. So Little Otter sets off for some fun. But with wolves on the prowl, Little Otterand#8217;s adventures are a series of dizzying close calls. When he finally returns to his den, Little Otterand#8217;s family is all played out and ready for bed!
"In this follow-up to Utterly Otterly Day, Little Otter and his family pop through the frozen ice and slide down snowy hills under moonlight. Casanova's gently cadenced verse mimics the otters' movements: 'Up and down, the otters play./ They glide and slide,/ in a whooshily, shooshily way.' Little Otter encounters other animals as he plays, including a rabbit, owl, and moose. But atop a high hill, he smells trouble: a pack of wolves. Hoyt's matte pen-and-ink illustrations create contrast between the smiling, rosy-cheeked otters and the chilly blue of the wild landscape; Little Otter's tense escape will leave readers relieved by his family's safe return.
