The Otters Tale, by Simon Cooper, £16.99
For readers who loved Tarka the Otter and Miriam Darlington’s Otter journey this couldn’t be better. After purchasing an abandoned water mill by a little chalk stream the author soon started to receive visits from the assorted wildlife that had their habitats nearby. However, one creature that he never expected to become so intimate with was the otter. The otters found their perfect home, with Simon, in his house, and so an intriguing tale of nature becoming closer to mankind began. Otters are shy, elusive creatures and this was, to say the least, rather unexpected. Interweaving the natural history of these beautiful animals, only recently saved from extinction in Britain, we learn their complex lifestyle from an author who has a front row seat. Lucky man.
