Otto's Orange Day

Otto's Orange Day Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

When Otto the cat meets a magical genie, he knows just what to wish for: he makes the whole world orange!

At first, this new, bright world seems like a lot of fun, but when his mom serves orange spinach for lunch, Otto realizes that his favorite color isn't the best color for everything. Fixing this mixed-up world won't be easy, though, because Otto already used up his only wish. To save the day, Otto will need his family's help, some quick thinking, and...a pizza?

Otto is the creation of two master cartoonists who bring all the fun and magic comics can offer to early readers.

Review:

"[A] high-quality comic that is both loads of fun and easy to read....[S]ure to engage a new generation in the art form; kids will want to read it once, then return to it again and again." Booklist (Starred Review)

Review:

"Fantastic!...The illustrations are awesome; the writing has rhythm and is fun to read aloud. It is a book that is perfect for both boys and girls....This is a must own book for young readers." Children's Literature

Review:

"Otto's Orange Day is a takeoff on the King Midas story with three chapters and a small twist at the end — just enough to keep beginning chapter book readers on their toes without being overly challenged." The Horn Book

Review:

"The cartoons are lively and colorful. Clear chapter divisions, a clean graphic design, and large-size print make this title more appropriate for early readers than most comic-book offerings." School Library Journal

Review:

"Low on violence and high on production values, this comics-format Toon Book will leave emergent readers wishing for more." Kirkus Reviews
