Otter Goes to School by Sam Garton


Otter Goes to School by Sam Garton

Otter-the irrepressible picture book character from I Am Otter, Otter in Space, and Otter Loves Halloween!, sure to be adored by fans of Llama Llama-goes to school for the first time! In Otter Goes to School, Otter starts her own school for Teddy, Giraffe, and the rest of her friends. They have a great teacher and do lots of fun things together ...until Teddy says he doesn't like school anymore. Luckily, Otter Keeper comes to the rescue and teaches everyone the best lesson of all!


Garton's Otter is adorably roly-poly and just realistic enough to differentiate her from her stuffed pupils, and her droll expressions are spot-on.What adventure will Otter have next? -- Kirkus Reviews As in Otter's previous books, Garton's wry sense of humor and richly detailed artwork generate a steady steam of laughs. -- Publishers Weekly A wonderful storytime offering to soothe back-to-school blues; Otter devotees and newcomers will savor this one. -- School Library Journal
