Otter has fallen in love with a fish. Falling in love with one’s food source might strike some as strange, which is exactly what the creatures of the river in which Otter lives say. Raschka (two-time Caldecott winner) creates a strange and beautiful world in which there is social disapproval of this unconventional relationship. By showing the power of love, Otter may inspire young people who have experience with unconventional families to think about what is really important. Grades 1–3.
