Synopsis

I Am Otter by Sam Garton

The curious, charming, playful, and internet-famous Otter makes her picture book debut in I Am Otter by author-illustrator Sam Garton. Here's what Otter has to say about her book: Hi! I am Otter, and this is a book about me and my best friends, Otter Keeper and Teddy. And it's about the fun and messy (and little bit scary) adventure we had one day when Otter Keeper was at work. I hope you like the story! (And if you don't, it's probably Teddy's fault.) Otter's utterly winning voice and Sam Garton's classic yet fresh artwork combine to create a truly hilarious and unforgettable friendship story.

Reviews

A bright and hilarious escapade about an otter who, bored while her owner's at work, opens a toast restaurant. Hysterical. -- Kirkus Reviews (starred review) This fully realized picture book captures warmth, imagination, and playfulness in the character of Otter. -- School Library Journal Good-natured fun. -- Booklist Garton's debut picture book does a bang-up job of introducing Otter. There's a lovely dimensionality and sense of physical comedy in Garton's digitally created artwork. Combined with Otter's winning brand of self-importance, it's plenty to propel her into future adventures. -- Publishers Weekly
