Product description

Review

"Writing in exquisitely descriptive free verse, Applegate delivers an uplifting tale of an inquisitive sea otter pup raised by scientists after being separated from her mother. ...Though humans make cameo appearances...the focus remains rightfully on its enigmatic star: a lovable otter who not only survives against the odds but thrives." ―Publishers Weekly, starred review

"Based on the Monterey Bay Aquarium and its otter rescue and fostering program,
this gorgeous story is told in flowing free verse that slips by as silkily as an otter in water. ... Told almost entirely from Odder’s perspective, imparting dreamy observations of the natural and human worlds from an animal’s point of view. Handsome black-and-white illustrations...punctuate the verses... A stunning study of a remarkable and resilient sea creature." Booklist, starred review

"Soft, black-and-white illustrations dot Odder’s story, enhancing readers’ emotional connections to a captivating tale about life’s existential balance between survival and play."Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books (BCCB), starred review

"The free verse effortlessly weaves in scientific information, giving Odder a voice without overly anthropomorphizing any of the animals. The natural appeal of sea otters will draw readers in, but the book doesn’t shy away from real-world threats such as predators, disease, and pollution.... Charming black-and-white spot art captures the world and life of the sea." ―Kirkus Reviews

"This book will appeal to animal lovers and anyone who feels a little stifled by convention. Hand this to middle grade fans of marine biology, authors like Sharon Creech and Eliot Schrefer, and Applegate’s Newbery-winning The One and Only Ivan." ―School Library Journal
