A charming story about an adorable sea otter from the author of The Owl Who Was Afraid of the Dark. Pat is an adorable little sea otter. She likes turning up her toes and floating in the sea, chasing fish and asking a hundred and one questions. One day Pat's quiet life is turned upside down when she gets caught up in a pretty scary adventure. Suddenly she doesn't have time to ask any questions, and even if she did, no one would know the answers. This time Pat just has to find things out for herself! Filled with gentle humour and comfort, Jill Tomlinson's animal stories have been enjoyed by children who want to snuggle down with a good read for decades. Perfect for kids aged 5+ who love Julia Donaldson, and Dick King Smith's The Sheep Pig. This edition is beautifully illustrated by Paul Howard. Have you enjoyed all of Jill's animal stories? The Owl Who Was Afraid of the Dark The Cat Who Wanted to Go Home The Gorilla Who Wanted to Grow Up The Hen Who Wouldn't Give Up The Otter Who Wanted to Know The Penguin Who Wanted to Find Out Jill Tomlinson never intended to be a writer. She trained as an opera singer, and then decided to have a family whilst her voice matured. But illness intervened, and she had to find another outlet for her energies. She started on a journalism course, and by the third lesson decided she wanted to write for children. So she did! Jill Tomlinson's animal stories are much-loved and have been best-selling children's books for nearly four decades.
