My rating: 4 of 5 stars
A beautiful tale of an otter's life in the rural woods and meadows of England. The daily joys of life and the imminent dangers too. It is many years ago that I read this. Back in the 1980s. It was old then. I think it is set in the 1920s or 1930s. Yet it is still poignant to this day. Today, I believe that otters are a protected species. Back when the book was written, there were otter hunters with trained dogs to pursue the animal. Otters were regarded as pests to be exterminated in the book's time setting.
