[nice tight clean copy, one itty-bitty bump at top edge of rear cover; jacket spine sunned, minor edgewear, a couple of tiny tears at base of spine]. "When an intelligent otter is captured and trained by an egotistical professor to demonstrate mechanical writing on stage, he secretly learns to talk too. Swimmer has an acerbic tongue, a wry sense of humor, a kind heart, and an ingenious mind, all of which help him when he escapes to the woodlands and is pursued by bounty hunters. He assembles an odd collection of friends, and their wild adventures make compelling reading." Like most of this much- loved writer's works, this one has long been out of print.
