Oran the Curious Otter
By Lynne Rickards, illustrated by Abigail Hookham
Oran the curious otter pup is visiting the big sea for the very first time. When exploring underwater he meets Camille the seal who shows him the wonders of the sea, and what to watch out for! But when Camille’s in danger, can Oran rescue his new friend?
Written in Lynne Rickards’ signature rhyme, this is a charming tale of friendship and courage with a gentle message about ocean conservation. Abigail Hookham’s dynamic illustrations of Scottish sea life and charming seascapes are full of detail and character.
From the author of best-selling Skye the Puffling and Rowan the Red Squirrel, Oran the Curious Otter is a fun and affectionate celebration of Scotland’s coast and its creatures.
