Lootas, Little Wave Eater tells the story of a four-week-old orphaned sea otter that was adopted by the Seattle Aquarium. Color photographs throughout the book show how human handlers raised Lootas, then introduced her to other otters, and finally weaned her from constant human contact. Illustrations help educate young readers about sea otter habitat, food, anatomy, predators, and more. Royalties from sales of this book benefit the Seattle Aquarium’s Sea Otter Program.
