5.0 out of 5 stars A Trailblazing Pet, February 19, 2012
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: The true story of Okee the otter (Paperback)
I read this book over a several-day period and I am not sure it was the same book I read as a child that I remember titled An Otter in the House. It was the same otter, Okefenokee, and the same writer, Dorothy Wisbeski. The story gives a rollicking look at a very active and intelligent pet who takes over the house from the minute he gets there, especially the bathroom where the water is. I won't go through the book but the Wisbeskis were very fortunate their pet lived as most baby otters die as infants. Because Okee lived well past that stage it gave zookeepers an insight on how to raise and take care of otters. You find out very quickly that dealing with a growing otter is a very energetic occupation and keeps you active day and night. Despite all the problems and expenses, and a few scares, Okee was a real joy to own and love. I could not help comparing it to another famous otter book and movie, Ring of Bright Water. It takes a certain kind of person to deal with the trials and tribulations of owning such a challenging pet, and how wonderful to read about it such a delightful book as Okee the Otter.
