Lottie Potter Wants an Otter by Jeanne Willis, Leonie Lord


Lottie Potter Wants an Otter by Jeanne Willis, Leonie Lord

A feel-good, rhyming picture book, packed full of outrageously funny otters from multi-award-winning author, Jeanne Willis, with hilarious illustrations by Leonie Lord. When little Lottie Potter goes to Trotter's Otter shop to buy a new pet, she certainly doesn't expect to find quite so many kinds. There are spotty otters, potty otters, snotty otters and tangled-in-a-knotty otters - to name but a few! But what will she do when the otter she chooses turns out to be a rotter? A side-splittingly funny, fast-paced rhyming romp that's a joy to read out loud - again and again!
