Otis a nd the Scarecrow

otis

By Loren Long

Disappointing! The illustrations were as fabulous as ever, but the story-line was sadly missing. There was no suspense, no climax, no anything. This struck me as a book that the author had no vision for, but the publisher said, “We need another Otis book. Due September.” Here it is. Very well-illustrated, but dull compared to the Tornado and the Calf books. This story stays on one plane without building, exciting, resolving, or ending…

That said, my undiscriminating kids still liked the book!!! So, if you are an Otis fan, go ahead, get it out and “enjoy” it.
