Kah-Lan the young otter

May 31st, 2021

Karen Autio has written a second book from the point of view of a young male otter, Kah-Lan and the Stink-Ink (Crwth $9.95). Kah-Lan leaves the safety of the “otter raft” he grew up in, eventually linking up with two other young male otters.  They need to form their own raft for protection. Together, they face dangers they never could have imagined, like the fuel spill from the furless ones (humans) that is like ink from a giant octopus (only much worse and more damaging). And then there’s the orcas who will kill and eat him for a light snack. Described by fellow author and otter fan, Isabelle Groc (Sea Otters: A Survival Story) as “a delightful window into the sea otter’s world and a powerful reminder of our responsibility to protect our ocean,” this cross-over book is for young readers and adults.
