This lively book tells young readers everything they want to know about the life and behavior of the southern sea otter, its northern cousin, and lesser-known river otters. Forty color photographs by 13 exceptional wildlife photographers show the otter at work and play, while range maps show both current and historic locations of the otters. It's all here for the budding biologist or zoologist, or the just-plain-curious kid: otter methods of courtship and reproduction, eating habits, and the animal's complex relationship with humankind, including how these playful animals continue to be threatened by oil spills and the encroachment of human society. An "Otter Secrets" section presents "amazing but true" characteristics of the otter, while the "To Learn More" page points curious readers to related websites, books, organizations, videos, and DVDs.

From Booklist:

Gr. 4-7. Large, close-up mug shots of irresistible, whiskered marine animals will easily draw readers into this informative, picture-book-size revision of a 1993 title, which features improved visuals and design and expanded back matter. Detailed, highly readable text describes sea otter physiology, habits, habitats, and life cycle. Final sections examine the differences among otter species, threats posed by pollution and predators, and biologists' efforts to preserve the sea otter population. Leon doesn't shy away from the more bizarre realities of otter behavior, such as the violent mating rituals that leave females' noses "scarred and bloodied," and younger readers may have plenty of questions after reading these frank chapters. A brief list of suggested readings and Web sites points them to further resources for answers. An excellent choice for reports and browsing. Gillian Engberg
