Publisher Comments:

New York Times bestselling author/artist Loren Long creates an unforgettable children's classic.

Otis is a special tractor. He loves his farmer and he loves to work. And he loves the little calf in the next stall, whom he purrs to sleep with his soft motor. In fact, the two become great friends: they play in the fields, leap hay bales, and play ring-around-the-rosy by Mud Pond.

But when Otis is replaced with the big yellow tractor, he is cast away behind the barn, unused, unnoticed . . . until the little calf gets stuck in Mud Pond. Then there is only one tractoraand itas not big or yellowawho can come to the rescue. It is little old Otis who saves his friend. It is Otis who saves the day.

In a wonderful new palette, and in the tradition of classics like Mike Mulligan and His Steam Shovel and The Story of Ferdinand, Loren Long has crafted an unforgettable new storyaand characteracelebrating the power of friendship and perseverance.

Synopsis:

In the tradition of such classics as "Mike Mulligan and His Steam Shovel," the beloved, #1 "New York Times"-bestselling author/illustrator of "The Little Engine That Could" and "Drummer Boy" returns with an unforgettable new story--and character--that celebrates the power of friendship and perseverance.

Synopsis:

This "New York Times" bestseller is now available for the smallest of hands. Now a whole new age group is sure to fall in love with Otis, the friendly little tractor, thanks to this board book edition. Full color.

Synopsis:

Old Bear loves Little Cub with all his heart. He makes sure that Little Cub eats all his porridge, takes a nap during their snowy walk, and wraps his red scarf tightly around his ears. Little Cub doesn't want to be told what to do, but he always listens to Old Bear because he knows that Old Bear loves him so. But when Old Bear catches a cold, it's Little Cub who knows just what to do to make Old Bear feel better.

From the creator of the Gossie and Gertie books comes a playful and charming twist on parenting.

Synopsis:

In the short time that Otis has been in stores, readers-young and old-have taken to it in the same way that readers throughout the years have embraced many of our most celebrated picture books. Loren Long has created a story that is powerful in its simplicity and timelessness, one with a place on the shelf alongside the classics we all grew up reading. And now a whole new age group will fall in love with Otis, the friendly little tractor, thanks to this board book edition. Let the cries of putt puff puttedy chuff begin!
