Synopsis

Otter Moon by Tudor Humphries

Flibberty is a young otter who spends his nights dreaming and staring at the moon instead of catching fish. But one day, the King of the River sets him a seemingly impossible task: to serve him a great fish on a silver dish before daybreak. As the moon rises over the river, Flibberty sets off downstream on a journey that will take him far from home. But will he manage to fulfil the king's wishes before dawn?

Reviews

'A hauntingly magical fantasy.'

'Humphries's lyrical prose, festooned with internal rhymes and wordplay, is perfectly matched to his beautiful dusky watercolors. They shine with a silvery light, investing the adventure with a suitably majestic magic. First rate.'

About the Author

Tudor Humphries was born in 1953 and spent his childhood constantly drawing or lost in books. He trained as a costume and set designer for the theatre and was deeply influenced by the lighting and drama of theatre productions. Having qualified, Tudor returned to his first love, books, and moved to the rural backwater of North Devon with his wife. He became a landscape painter, wildlife artist and children's book illustrator. He spends as much time as possible out in the landscape, looking for wildlife, drawing deep inspiration from the natural, atmospheric world around him.
