Bought at the Edinburgh Book Festival 17 August 2006. Couldn't resist the title & the book cover.

Synopsis from amazon.co.uk
Sixteen-year-old Felix is bored and stressed. He's stressed about his 'A' Level results, stressed about working for that mad old bag Mrs Pretzel, stressed about what the future holds. He's also feeling mighty guilty about the possibly fatal combination of laxatives and scrabble tile (Z, ten points) he fed to Mrs P's spaniel, Vespasian. But it's not the stress or the guilt that initiates the bizarre quest that takes him half way around the world on a stolen debit card - it's curiosity. Felix is very curious about a statue he finds in the permanent clearance sale at 'The House of Crap' - a statue depicting a fat man and a sea otter in sexual congress. "Sea Otters Gambolling in the Wild, Wild Surf" is the story of where Felix's curiosity takes him, to Hong Kong, Tokyo, San Francisco; on a journey that challenges his preconceptions about the world, his plans for the future and his relationships with his family. Will he get home before his little sister discovers what he's up to? What'll happen to Vespasian? Will he get the passes he needs to get into University? Whatever!

This was not at all what I was expecting! Felix's tale of his journey around the world brought about by the discovery of the otter statue is told in the language of a teenager & is at times laugh out loud funny. He has quite the adventure, traveling to Hong Kong, Senzhan, Tokyo & California. On the plne on his way back to the UK he makes a shocking discovery about his mum.
