What did you like about the book? Ollie the Osprey has just learned to catch fish. Now he wants to present one to a female osprey, Isla but he cannot learn to drop it to her at the right time for her to catch it. He gets much assistance from his good friend, Rory the Otter. The illustrations by Kirsteen Harris-Jones are realistically and very attractively done.
