The animals of Greenriver are in danger. Can Sedge and Silken find their way along the river to each other in time to save their home? A gorgeously illustrated adventure story that readers aged 8+ will treasure.
Last spring, the otters' home flooded. Now the water is high again.
Young otter Sedge believes he can save his holt from another flood - but he has to be brave enough travel downstream for help.
Downriver, the beaver lodge is also at risk. Silken - who is too small and weak to do the work needed to strengthen the beavers' dam - feels something calling her up the river.
As the two animals unknowingly swim towards each other, they are drawn to the spirit of Greenriver, who takes the form of a snow-white otter, Lady River.
But will Lady River hear their plea for safety?
From million-copy selling Holly Webb comes a modern classic - a gorgeously-written epic journey about two animals and their against-the-odds journey to find each other. Perfect for fans of Pax.
