"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."

"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."
