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 Owls eyes. So Little Otter sets off for some fun. But with wolves on the prowl, Little Otters adventures are a series of dizzying close calls. When he finally returns to his den, Little Otters 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.
