I am always interested to read a story with heart, so this certainly captured my attention. The story begins with a spider trapping a beetle in her web. The beetle decides to buy a little time before being eaten, so he reads the spider a story. The story is about two otterwills that live by a river. They wake up to find that all the water from their beloved river is dried up, leaving the otterwills with a hard decision. Should they leave or should they stick it out? So, two of the otterwills, Grandma Lilibud and her grandson Puffer, go on a quest to find out what happened to the refreshing water they love so much.

While reading this story, I felt every plot twist and dangerous turn that Grandma Lilibud and Puffer felt. The way the two main characters comforted each other in times of desperation and danger was heart-warming. I recommend this book to anyone wanting to read a good story about two characters who persevere and decide to take on a problem that no one else will.


I have a passion for reading and writing. I love to explore the realms of a new story, each turn of a crisp page revealing new adventures, plot twists, and tender moments. I hope to be able to give this gift to someone someday by writing my own story.
