Praise
"Resurrecting stories of sweet machines aiding helpless animals is not easy in an era concerned with fossil fuels and feedlots, but Long's story should inspire readers to revisit old favorites."
"Long's gouache and pencil artwork is stunning with a red and cream main character against a sepia-toned monochromatic background. The overall effect is nostalgic and comforting as readers bond with the determined little tractor."
"How [a] little left-behind machine goes from has-been to hero is an all-too-familiar but nonetheless satisfying trope that will leave young readers with smiles as big as Otis's goofy grin."

Editors Note Always friendly and helpful in any way he can be, Otis the tractor takes pride in his job on the farm and befriends a little calf in the barn who is lulled by the soft hum of his engine, but when he gets ignored after the new large tractor takes his place, the farmer sees the error of his ways and looks to Otis to save the day when tragedy strikes.
Annotation A petite little tractor named Otis loves his life working on the farm, and has a great friendship with a long-legged calf. They have lots of fun together, but everything ends when a new tractor replaces Otis and he's put out to pasture. One day, the little calf finds himself stuck in Mud Pond, and there's only one special tractor who can come to the rescue! With expressive illustrations. Selected by Publishers Weekly as one of the Best Children's Books of 2009.
Editors Note 2 When a big new yellow tractor arrives, Otis the friendly little tractor is cast away behind the barn, but when trouble occurs Otis is the only one who can help.
