  Whisker'sWhisker's Great Adventure
Author: Meryl Doney
ISBN 0-8028-5124-X

Father Otter teaches his baby otters all the things they must know to be safe in the river.  He tells them to always swim upstream and to watch out for hounds, weasels, and wildcats. But Whisker is a defiant little otter and decides to explore the things that are down the river. As he swims downstream he encounters many dangers which he narrowly escapes. Exhausted and scared Whiskers meets a kind deer who advises him to swim back upstream and go home to his family. As Whisker is swimming home, he sees a striped wild cat on a rock above him ready to pounce.  At that moment Whisker's father springs from the river and fights off the cat making him run away.

Use this book to discuss why it is important to obey and the possible consequences of disobedience.
