Otter in Space by Sam Garton

Fans of picture book characters like Llama Llama will love the curious, charming, and playful Otter, who made her debut in I Am Otter. In her second book, Otter in Space, she and her best friend, Teddy, set off on a once-in-a-lifetime adventure-to the moon! Otter's utterly winning voice and Sam Garton's classic yet fresh artwork combine to create a truly hilarious and unforgettable friendship story, with a classroom hook. Otter in Space is all about creativity, problem solving, and the power of imagination.


From mishun control to launch and liftoff, Garton's bright, shiny digital illustrations are full of sparkle and humor. Lively, giggle-producing proof that imaginative play is just as good as getting to the moon. -- Kirkus Reviews (starred review) Bound to please established fans and to cultivate some new ones. -- Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books
