How odd is it that an otter would fall in love with his food source?
Everyone agrees, it’s pretty odd. Unusual. Impossible, even. Otter cannot love a fish. It is just not right.
After much consternation, wondering and questioning, Otter realizes that he does love a fish.
And the fish loves Otter. So they buck convention, and live happily ever after together, eating apples.
Otter and Odder by James Howe is a sweet love story for young children, about deciding what is right no matter what everyone else says. The child-like illustrations by Chris Raschka sweeten the story even more.
Recommended for ages 2-8.
