Ka-splash! Head to the river, where a frolicsome bunch of otters plays all year round in a nonfiction story sprinkled with facts -- and loaded with fun.

It's spring, and a litter of baby river otters emerges from a den . . . to play! Follow the otters through the seasons as they chase one another, slide down a mudbank, jump in a pile of leaves, and learn to swim. Even while catching fish for their dinner or grooming themselves in the snow, otters love to play -- and Jonathan London's lively text and Meilo So's fluid watercolors invite you to share in the joy.

Follow a litter of slinky, baby river otters as they slide down a mudbank or play tug-of-war. Facts are given on some double page spreads. A non-fiction winner by picture book author Jonathan London; a favourite illustrator of library staff.

Has election time driven you to despair? Remember this: Otters. To be more specific: Otters love to play. This is a great way to cheer yourself up, and teach your kids about otters, especially if you've just returned from the Topeka Zoo (where two beautiful and hilarious otters happen to live), or if you're headed there soon.
