A trio of otters moves into rabbit’s neighborhood, and they’re a bit ill-mannered, with their over-the-top gesturing and smelly fish. How can everyone just get along? According to this wickedly funny new book, the answer’s an old one: “Do unto otters…” Laurie Keller’s exploration of what that really means is packed with visual and verbal gags, and her non-messagey message is perfect for kids returning to the classroom this week.
