Otter’s Coat Cordellya Smith 4*#Review #CordellyaSmithAuthor @RandomTTours #OttersCoat #BlogTour #BookReview #ChildrensBooks #kidlit #picturebook

When Rabbit hears the animals talking about what a beautiful coat Otter has, he becomes jealous. 

After he tricks Otter out of the coat, Turtle races to make sure it is returned to the true owner. 

This story is a Cherolachian (Cherokee + Appalachian) retelling of the Tortoise and the Hare.

This twist on the classic Aesop’s fable is beautifully illustrated and one that both children and adults will enjoy – over and over again. 

Young readers also love discovering where chipmunk is hiding in the illustrations as they turn from one page to the next.

I received a copy of this book from the author in return for an honest review.

My Thoughts…

I like the colourful illustrations and the excitement of the race between the rabbit and the turtle. The short chapters are engaging. The game of finding the hidden chipmunks make this a fun read with a positive message for children about behaviour. It was interesting to read a different interpretation of a familiar story.
