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.

"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."
