Format: Paperback
An Otter on the Aga is a tale about love for animals. How a husband and wife's team, wanting to care for strays and abondoned animals in Cornwall, ultimately led to the establishment of an RSPCA animal shelter.
The book is a collection of warm, happy and sometimes not-so-happy stories of encounters with the various animals the Harper family acquired and cared for over the years; the multitude of characters that caused them problems and yet gave them happiness.
'Though the title of the book is An Otter on the Aga, in my opinion it could well have been called Odin descends on Cornwall, as the tale of Odin the raven is one of the best in the book.
For animal lovers, this book is a must-have!

I am really surprised there aren't more reviews for this book. It is utterly delightful. For anybody who wants to read about animals and get to know their personalities, you can't go wrong with this book. Curl up on the couch and enjoy!

Being a Brit living abroad in bustling Hong Kong this book is a wonderful way to 'come home' and get back to the nature and fresh air of Cornwall. It's a tale of true dedication all the more meaningful due to me actually knowing one of Rex Harper's sons from uni days.
