Follow along as Pup learns how to eat spiky sea urchins, somersault beneath the waves and groom himself. He still needs lots of help from Mother, but one day Pup will be old enough to dive down below the waves and search for food on his own

Accompanied by beautiful illustrations and set in the North Pacific, this heartwarming tale is perfect for little ones who still have lots to learn themselves.
Eco Parent - April 1, 2014
"The book reads gently, in a pace that reminds you of the rhythm of the waves of the Pacific Ocean."
Southwestern Ohio Young Adult Materials Review Group - January 1, 2014
"Gives an accurate depiction of a sea otter pup's life. The illustration are realistic and the otter pup is very cute."
CM Magazine - October 4, 2013
"Gatt’s acrylic painting illustrations are more vibrant in this [new board book format], consisting of rich greens and browns, and their realistic nature reflects the basic facts about sea otters that are being shared throughout the story...Carefully chosen words, such as 'slurps' and 'gobbles,' encourage vocabulary exploration...Sea Otter Pup continues to be a favourite for many young readers, and this board book version would be a welcome addition to any home or public library. Highly Recommended."
Resource Links - October 1, 2013
"This appealing story of a young sea otter pup's relaxing days with his mother is beautifully illustrated with large paintings in soft colours, realistically depicting the animals. Both text and drawings should appeal to young listeners and beginning readers."
