Grade 3-5-An engaging narrative of the rescue of an orphaned sea otter pup and the efforts of the U.S. Fish & Wildlife Service and the staff of the Seattle Aquarium to raise her. Beginning with a fictionalized (but scientifically accurate) account of Lootas's birth and early days, it describes the boating accident that left her frightened and injured in the chill waters of Uganik Bay, AK. Pulled from the water by the boaters, Lootas began a trek to the Seattle Aquarium, home of an award-winning sea otter breeding program. This absorbing record is accompanied by many small, crisp color photos showing the furry, demanding Lootas charming her way into her caregivers' hearts. The readable text closes with her successful introduction into the aquarium's otter group, where she was "adopted" by a young female. Sidebars provide further information on sea otters, but this is not a book for research on the particulars in the life of these appealing Mustelids. Rather, team this title with such titles as Roland Smith's Sea Otter Rescue (Puffin, 1999) and Caroline Arnold's Baby Whale Rescue (BridgeWater, 1999) to show children the demand for scientists and support staff who understand the needs of our fellow creatures on Earth.

It is a true story told in a way that young kids can relate. They can see the good work done to save Lootas and other animals when they are orphaned. And should you ever find yourself in Seattle, be sure to stop by to say "hi" to Lootas yourself...she loves the attention!!!
