His journey is full of surprises.

Read on to find out.

I received a copy of this book through Netgalley. This is my honest review. 

This is a story about a couple days in the life of a baby sea otter. It included a nightmare the otter had that ended with being rescued by a mermaid. There didn't seem to be much point to the story or a lesson to learn, and I felt like the dream sequence kind of came out of left field. 

The illustrations were pretty adorable though. They were bright and colorful and very eye catching, showing the story as it's being told. I don't think I'd want to read this book very many times myself because it just seemed so random to me. Overall I give it 2.3 out of 5 stars. - Katie
