A mesmerizing voyage into the nighttime sea--with spectacular, affecting paintings by bestselling artist Jim LaMarche and bestselling author Warren Hansen!
Baby Otter is sleepy after a long day of play. Now he cuddles in his mama's arms as calm, silvery waters rock him gently toward sleep.
But there are many wondrous things to see before he gets there. They drift past leaping dolphins and schools of swimming fish. And there's the loving, beaming moon, who rests her friendly face on the water's sparkling surface. All the while, jewel-like stars light their way as they glide through the night toward morning.
Jim LaMarche is one of the most talented artists working in children's books today. His many successful books include "Rainbabies" by Laura Kraus Melmed and "Albert" by Donna Jo Napoli, which was selected as a New York Times Best Illustrated Book; and "Up" and "Raft", which he also wrote. Most recently he illustrated "The Carpenter's Gift" by David Rubel. Jim lives in Santa Cruz, California.
