SEA OTTERS

Shaw views sea otter Garbo and her son Bo both directly and through the eyes of Susan, a scientist who observes them from her boat and, equipped with a wetsuit, from underwater. We see how Garbo gets food from the ocean and opens shells with a rock, and how she cares for Bo and teaches him to do these things for himself. But hauling in the scientist observer doesn't add any perspective, background information, or vitality; and Pape's illustrations are both lifeless and indistinct.
