About this title

Synopsis:

A mesmerizing voyage into the nighttime sea--with spectacular, affecting paintings by bestselling artist Jim LaMarche and bestselling author Warren Hansen!
Baby Otter is sleepy after a long day of play. Now he cuddles in his mama's arms as calm, silvery waters rock him gently toward sleep.
But there are many wondrous things to see before he gets there. They drift past leaping dolphins and schools of swimming fish. And there's the loving, beaming moon, who rests her friendly face on the water's sparkling surface. All the while, jewel-like stars light their way as they glide through the night toward morning.
