Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

"A high-quality comic that is both loads of fun and easy to read. . . . Sure 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)

When Otto the cat meets a magical genie, he knows just what to wish for: to make 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 isnt the best color for everything. Fixing this mixed-up world wont be easy though, because Otto already used up his only wish. To save the day, Otto will need his familys help, some quick thinking, and . . . a pizza? Two master cartoonists collaborate to bring all the fun and magic comics can offer to early readers.

About the Author

Frank Cammuso, who drew Ottos adventure, lives in Syracuse, New York, where he is the award-winning political cartoonist for the Syracuse Post-Standard. He is the Eisner-nominated creator of Max Hamm Fairy Tale Detective, selected as one of the Top Ten Graphic Novels of 2006 by Booklist, and is at work on Knights of the Lunch Table, a middle school version of King Arthur and his Knights. His writing has appeared in The New Yorker, The New York Times, The Village Voice and Slate.

Jay Lynch, who wrote Ottos story, was born in Orange, NJ (honest, ORANGE, NJ!). He now lives in upstate New York with his wife, his dog, and way too many cats. He is the founder of Bijou Funnies, one of the first and most important underground comics of the Sixties, and for many years wrote the weekly syndicated comic strip, Phoebe and the Pigeon People. He has helped create some of Topps Chewing Gums most popular humor products, such as Wacky Packages and Garbage Pail Kids.
