Wonderful review! I rushed right over to Amazon and pre-ordered. :)
I'm a huge otter fan. I grew up near Point Lobos State Park, California, and always enjoyed watching the mother otters bobbing around with their babies tethered in the kelp nearby.
I'm excited to read this--it sounds amazing!   :love4
