Otter Everywhere

Otter Everywhere: Brand New Readers. By Christine Webster. Illustrated by Tim Nihoff. 2007. Candlewick Press. 48 pages.

Otter Everywhere is part of Candlewick's Brand New Readers series. It contains four stories starring Otter. These include: Otter's Picnic, Otter Makes Bubbles, Otter Goes Swimming, Otter's Apples. Each story is simple and predictable. Though the books use only a few words, Webster does still manage to tell an interesting story. Often each story has a slight twist.

From Otter's Picnic:
Otter has a banana.
Otter has an apple.
Otter has cheese.
Ants take the banana.
Ants take the apple...
Can you predict what will happen next? My favorite stories are Otter's Picnic and Otter's Apples.
