Extremely well written and funny! I love the cats and dogs in the story and the otters are great! I can't wait for the next book to come out :)

On the surface, Otters In Space: The Search for Cat Havana is an anthropomorphic animal-lover's dream, with cats, dogs, and otters walking and talking with the best of them. Dig deeper, and you'll find a compelling narrative about social class as well as rising against injustice and oppression; about what it means to have a home and the trials one is willing to go through to find that place. Otters in Space has hints of Richard Adam's Watership Down and Tad William's Tailchaser's Song, but manages a quirkiness all its own, with memorable characters and interesting turns. I wait eagerly for the next installment!

I just finished Otters in Space, a science fiction novel taking place on Earth after humans have left and genetically engineered animals have taken over the world.
This was a fun young adult book that readers of any age would enjoy! The characters are memorable and the humor witty. I was pulled along until the very end, staying up past my bedtime because I had to see what would happen next. I am amazed by the quality of the writing, the well-crafted storytelling, and the complexities of world-building. I really enjoyed how issues of race and oppression are explored in a safe and accessible way for young adults. I can’t wait for the sequel to come out!

This is a delightful read about cats, dogs and otters in a world abandoned by humans. The characters were so aptly fleshed out and personified.

Smart, funny. A must read, especially for those living in this world with our furry friends. Dearly hoping this will become a long series of otters (and cats and dogs) in space.

I was very surprised by this novel. There were points where I actually laughed out loud. The characters were endearing and the although covering some underlyingly serious social issues, the story felt fresh. I found this a thoroughly enjoyable read. Thumbs up.

Fabulous! Cats and dogs and otters, and somehow this captures their very different personalities. Well, I've never actually met an otter...loads of fun, can't wait for more.
