“Saving Squeak: The Otter Tale” is an exciting account of a young hero named Braden who discovers an orphaned baby otter in the park and names him Squeak. Braden and his parents contact a wildlife rehabber to collect Squeak and nurse him back to health. Although Braden would love to keep Squeak as his pet, he learns about otters and the importance of rescuing and rehabilitating wildlife that live among humans. The tale is based on the work of real-life Virginia wildlife rehabber Suzanne McBride who helps return creatures such as river otters to the wild.
