Watch Pup grow from his birth to first dive and from rambunctious play with other sea otter pups to a frightening encounter with a predator.

Bestselling author Jonathan London tells Pup's story in sparse, poetic text with vivid vocabulary while luminous illustrations by London's son, Sean London, bring the adorable Pup and his loving mother to life within the swirling sea around them.

London's newest creation in his picture book collection about baby animals (including The Seasons of Little Wolf, Little Puffin's First Flight, and Honey Paw and Lightfoot) will entertain children with a combination of learning and fun. An author's note at the end shares fascinating facts about this popular keystone species.
