About the Author:

Clare Hodgson Meeker is an award-winning author. She teaches writing workshops in elementary and middle schools throughout the Pacific Northwest and to adults at Richard Hugo House, a writers cooperative in Seattle, Washington. Born and raised in New York, she graduated with a B.A. in Music from Boston University and received a law degree from Hofstra University in 1980. She left the practice of law to raise two children and began writing books for children in 1993.

From School Library Journal:

Grade 3-5-An engaging narrative of the rescue of an orphaned sea otter pup and the efforts of the U.S. Fish & Wildlife Service and the staff of the Seattle Aquarium to raise her. Beginning with a fictionalized (but scientifically accurate) account of Lootas's birth and early days, it describes the boating accident that left her frightened and injured in the chill waters of Uganik Bay, AK. Pulled from the water by the boaters, Lootas began a trek to the Seattle Aquarium, home of an award-winning sea otter breeding program. This absorbing record is accompanied by many small, crisp color photos showing the furry, demanding Lootas charming her way into her caregivers' hearts. The readable text closes with her successful introduction into the aquarium's otter group, where she was "adopted" by a young female. Sidebars provide further information on sea otters, but this is not a book for research on the particulars in the life of these appealing Mustelids. Rather, team this title with such titles as Roland Smith's Sea Otter Rescue (Puffin, 1999) and Caroline Arnold's Baby Whale Rescue (BridgeWater, 1999) to show children the demand for scientists and support staff who understand the needs of our fellow creatures on Earth.
