Educator and Librarian Resources

Critical Praise

PRAISE FOR I AM OTTER: “A bright and hilarious escapade about an otter who, bored while her owner’s at work, opens a toast restaurant. Hysterical.” - Kirkus Reviews (starred review)

PRAISE FOR I AM OTTER: “Garton’s debut picture book does a bang-up job of introducing Otter. There’s a lovely dimensionality and sense of physical comedy in Garton’s digitally created artwork. Combined with Otter’s winning brand of self-importance, it’s plenty to propel her into future adventures.” - Publishers Weekly

PRAISE FOR I AM OTTER: “This fully realized picture book captures warmth, imagination, and playfulness in the character of Otter.” - School Library Journal

PRAISE FOR OTTER IN SPACE: “From “mishun control” to launch and liftoff, Garton’s bright, shiny digital illustrations are full of sparkle and humor. Lively, giggle-producing proof that imaginative play is just as good as getting to the moon.” - Kirkus Reviews (starred review)

PRAISE FOR OTTER IN SPACE: “Another “Aw”-inspiring adventure with Otter.” - School Library Journal

PRAISE FOR OTTER GOES TO SCHOOL: “Garton’s Otter is adorably roly-poly and just realistic enough to differentiate her from her stuffed pupils, and her droll expressions are spot-on. What adventure will Otter have next?” - Kirkus Reviews

PRAISE FOR OTTER GOES TO SCHOOL: “As in Otter’s previous books, Garton’s wry sense of humor and richly detailed artwork generate a steady stream of laughs.” - Publishers Weekly
