Synopsis: from author's site "After a long journey to discover the
source of the water that flows into the sea,
a sea otter named Lady Rose finds a way
to send a message back to her friends."

My Review: I have always loved the Serendipity books, but I had never read this one before now. It is quite a sentimental book and can be used to teach children so many lessons, maybe an older sibling goes to college, or family member has to move away for a job, or maybe even a pet has gone over the rainbow bri

Beautiful story about following what drives you and also how to keep in check with your friends as your friends will always be there for you if they are good friends even when you move on. The only thing is this book has the lesson that she found beauty at the end of the path and wanted to stay while sometimes in real life there isn't always beauty, which I think is another lesson that parents can bring up to their children when they read this.

This Serendipity book may be a little heavy hitting for younger readers if they understand the metaphor. Lady Rose is an otter with a mission - to find the source of the water she loves to play in. Her friends all think it's a crazy idea and don't understand why she has to go. She does eventually find the source and devises a way to send a message back to her friends.

The underlying story is, of course, about loss. This is hard to explain to small children and the story may not make it any easier
Lady Rose is about a sea otter that finds the source of the river. The illustrations are very nice and the story is entertaining as well.
