Adults saying no to children, sound familiar? Well the otter in this little story won’t let that stop her from finding out the truth for herself.
Sophie the sea otter is curious about what lies at the place where the sea meets the sky. Despite her mother’s words, “The horizon, you mean. No one can reach it and no one should try,” Sophie is fascinated by the lighthouse that she can see. Whilst her mother heads off in search of fish, Sophie heads off in search of the horizon on an epic ocean adventure…
A lovely underwater adventure about the most adorable little sea otter who is curious about a magical place that she can see but unfortunately can never reach no matter how hard she tries. Along the way she meets other sea creatures including a walrus, a whale, lobsters, starfish, sharks, colourful fish and a rumbling monster. A moment of peril finds Sophie in danger but readers need not fear as mum arrives just in time to save the day.
Rhyming text along with playful and colourful illustrations throughout make this a lovely read for parents and children to share together. Sophie offers wonderful messages on curiosity and bravery and there is the most loving of bonds between mother and child.
