I love you like no otter,
You truly are the best.

Together every day.
Pawsitively amazing,
In every single way.

(synopsis from Goodreads)

I don't know whether to say "aww" or to groan and roll my eyes. This book is so punny... but in the most adorable way!

I Love You Like No Otter combines short, pun-filled rhymes with the most adorable illustrations of little animals and their parents. Everyone looks so cute and fuzzy and huggable. I can totally see this working as a bedtime book, because of its sweet rhymes and gentle illustrations.

It's a simple book, but it works. It would make a nice baby gift, too.

Thank you to NetGalley and Sourcebooks Wonderland for providing a digital ARC.
