  1. Well done. Love all your photos. I remember us working on ‘Tenko’ and Bee your otter biting a hole in a plastic pool when we went to Holy Trinity Infants school to promote your book, dear Miss Gillingham the headmistress galantly stood bare footed on a large piece of blue tack to stop the water escaping, whilst Bee ate a dead fish which floated over her toes!

    • Good to hear from you. We still have a tame otter who will appear in the next series of ‘The Durrells’. We’ve put a number of stories about Bee the Otter in ‘Funnily Enough’ by Sophie Neville which is available from Amazon or can be ordered from the library. Quite fun!
