Ollie the osprey loves to swoop into the water and catch fish. But once he's caught them, he's useless at throwing them! And if he can't throw a delicious fish to Isla, she'll never become his friend.

Rory the otter says he can help Ollie practise his throwing.

Full of fun sounds, this is a brilliant story about doing what you love, by interactive storyteller Emily Dodd, with gentle illustrations of a host of loveable Scottish birds and animals in the picturesque Scottish Highlands.
