After a baby otter is separated from his mother during a storm, he washes up on shore alone and exhausted. A human rescues him and takes him to an aquarium where he's taught how to survive in the wild--lessons his own mother would have taught if they hadn't been separated. Seababy learns important tasks like diving, swimming, and eating, and before long he is well prepared to return home to the sea.
Based on an actual program run by Monterey Bay Aquarium, Ellen Levine's research with the scientists working with the baby otters lends this heartfelt tale authenticity, and Jon Van Zyle's signature style captures the cute factor of these adorable babies, making this book a must have for animal lovers and science fans alike.
Jon Van Zyle s art has garnered him numerous honors. His prints, posters, and lithographs are prized by collectors. Jon and his wife live in Alaska, where they maintain a dog team of Siberian huskies. www.jonvanzyle.com
