When a baby otter was found in a farmer s field, Tracy the zookeeper was called to the rescue. She and her Welsh Corgi Muffin befriended Squirt. They opened their home to her and gave her all the love she needed to grow into a strong healthy otter, but not without their fair share of adventure and adversity along the way! This is a heartfelt story of love, compassion, and friendship. Tracy, Squirt, and Muffin help us reconnect to the natural world and show us how the bond between humans and creatures can flourish, especially when we open our hearts.

Tracy L. Mikowski was born and raised in northern Michigan. She grew up with a family-owned animal park and delighted in a childhood filled with wild and domestic birds and animals. Her compassion for all living creatures became evident at a very young age. Tracy was a zookeeper for many years at Clinch Park Zoo in Traverse City, Michigan, where she lov- ingly cared for all the animal residents, including otters, wolves, mountain lions, bats, and porcupines. Tracy now lives in Alaska with her husband, Joe, and their five dogs.Review:
Squirt's endearing story teaches children about love, trust, and the right time to let go. Tracy, Muffin, and Squirt show us the joy that comes from the companionship of others both for animals and the people who love and care for them. --Carl R. Sams II and Jean Stoick, authors of The New York Times best-selling In the Woods children's picture book series
The natural world often seems to be receding from us at light speed, and we are often left wondering what to do when the wild and the civilized collide before us up close and personal. Do we intercede or walk away? With wisdom gained from a life s work with animals, Tracy Mikowski, aided by the adept hand of illustrator P. M. Richard, tells a story from the heart about one such intersection and the life lessons learned about when to help and when to let go. --Glenn Wolff, illustrator ofIt's Raining Frogs and Fishes by Jerry Dennis, Flight of the Reindeer and A Child's Christmas in New England by Robert Sullivan
