Otto feels safest when he holds hands with his family at night...so safe that he insists holding hands during the day too! What will persuade the little ottter to face his fears and finally let go? Every evening Otto's family come together to hold hands when they sleep. But in the morning Otto doesn't want to let go! Poor Otto's parents can't get anything done with him holding on to them, but he's just too worried and afraid to be left on his own. Until one day Mum opens a special shell with a pearl inside that sparks Otto's attention! It's beautiful...and he can see another otter inside it, reaching out to him! Otto takes the pearl into his hands - and realizes that he's not holding on to his Mum or Dad anymore, and he feels fine!

I just love this book.  A great message for timid or clingy younger children and beautifully illustrated. It centres around a little sea otter who is scared to let go off his parents but soon realised there is nothing to be afraid of.  Lovely little bedtime story.

This is a wonderful book to snuggle up in bed with and read together. We loved the story of Otto who is a bit scared and afraid to let go of his mother's hand. It is a lovely simple story and shows young ones who are a bit clingy that it is ok to let go. My eldest child (7) enjoyed being able to read this to his younger sibling. The story is beautifully illustrated and we also enjoyed just looking at the pictures.
