Waterstones Says

Poetic national treasure Pam Ayres teams up with popular illustrator Nicola O'Byrne for this delightful rhyming picture book all about the eponymous otter and the very special friend he makes on the riverbank.

A heart-warming, rhyming story about a little otter called Oliver, written by bestselling poet Pam Ayres, author of The Last Hedgehog.

'Come on down to the riverbank, and discover a wild and wonderful world.'

Oliver the otter is happy enough living alone, swimming or scampering along the twisty-rooted waterways. Until one day, among the green rushes, he meets an otter called Ottilie – and his life changes forever.

Written in rhyme and beautifully illustrated by the award-winning Nicola O'Byrne, Pam Ayres's charming tale brings the natural world to life. With nature facts interwoven throughout, and an information page at the end, including tips on how to spot and look after otters.

I Am Oliver the Otter will make the perfect gift for nature lovers of all ages.
