Booklist - 04/15/2012 A storm separates a baby sea otter from his nurturing mother and strands him on a sandy beach. Rescued, he is taken to an aquarium, where someone feeds him from a bottle. When he’s a little older, a sea otter surrogate mom “adopts him,” teaching him how to dive for food in their salt-water pool and how to open shellfish. Finally, he is released into the ocean, where he joins a group of sea otters and feels at home once more. Double-page acrylic paintings beautifully depict the otters and their watery habitats. Levine, whose books include Darkness over Denmark (2000) and Henry’s Freedom Box (2007), tells the story clearly, in short sentences that read aloud well. An author’s note describes the Monterey Bay Aquarium’s program for rescuing sea otter pups, and lists of books and websites are appended as well. An appealing choice for children intrigued by animal-rescue stories. - Copyright 2012 Booklist.
