King Otter

King Otter was published in June 2019 by Simon & Schuster. It’s the story of an ordinary otter who gets a little bit too big for his boots when he finds a crown and fine clothes… before realising that friendship is more important than power. It’s inspired by my birthday cowboy boots and my love of river swimming!  You can read more about King Otter here.

“King Otter is a clever, fascinating and original picture book. It is very funny… a story to enjoy and wallow over – rather like Otter and his muddy paws” Bookwagon

“Jane Porter’s illustrations are bright, fun & sketchy…she captures the animals’ facial expressions brilliantly, making this a book where you see something different on the page with every read.” My Book Corner
