An Otter Called Pebble


The seventh in a fantastic series of animal stories for younger readers by Waterstones Children’s Book Prize-shortlisted author Helen Peters, with beautiful black-and-white illustrations by Ellie Snowdon.

Jasmine and Tom are amazed to spot a baby otter alone on the riverbank. When the little cub is swept downstream, they risk everything to rescue her. But where is her family? Can Jasmine and Tom find Pebble’s home before it’s too late?

Brilliant storytelling that will make you laugh and cry, this is Dick King-Smith for a new generation.
