About the Author
Michael Broad lives in Surrey with a big black dog called Bella who likes to drop toys at his feet while he's writing or drawing and then waits for him to get up and trip over them.Michael studied illustration at Portsmouth University, earning 1st Class Honors, and after brief detours in film and animation he now works solely on writing and illustrating books for children of all ages.His picture books include Scaredy Cat and Boo! which was nominated for the Kate Greenaway Medal. He also writes young fiction series like The Unbelievable Adventures of Jake Cake, of which the first book, The Werewolf Teacher, was shortlisted for the Waterstone's Children's Book Prize and the Nottingham Children's Book Award.Michael has a particular interest in writing for reluctant readers, having been one himself, so he tries to pack as much adventure into as few words as possible, and then throws in oodles of illustrations!When he's not writing or drawing, which is hardly ever because it's so much fun, Michael likes long walks with Bella, drinking whole pots of tea and painting big canvasses.

I love this book!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
But I love animals anyway so reading a story about them is great!
This book is amazing. When the Brown family, a family of Otter's decide their house is getting too small for them, Papa Brown, Mama Brown, Grandma Maple, Grandpa Brown, Cocoa, Beanie, Woody, Chestnut and Nutmeg (The twins), decide to move to a bigger, better house only to find another otter family (their arch enemies) were already living there. The only way to settle the dispute over who lives there was an `Otterly' chaotic sports day!
I don't want to give it away but an act of surprising kindness by Woody cost the Brown's the victory.
This is a surprising book with a twist at the end. I really like Jim Field's illustrations too. I'm looking forward to the next book Otter Chaos - Dam Busters.
Verdict: I love this book and think this book is for boys and girls aged 7 to 12 .
