Raccoon and Otter

A heartwarming picture book about friendship and caring, set in a lush landscape where two friends, Raccoon and Otter, witness a miracle. They save a caterpillar from drowning; Otter feels he should take care of the poor thing, while Raccoon resents all the fussing, since Otter has no time left to play. Then comes the mir- acle: the caterpillar turns into a beautiful butterfly.

The illustrations are painted in warm earthy colours. The facial expressions of the two friends are explicit, almost human, their mix of happiness and sadness at the release of the butterfly clearly visible.
