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.
From the Publisher:
An age-friendly version of a New York Times best-seller follows the story of a friendly little tractor who makes soft purring engine sounds at night to lull his calf best friend to sleep and who fears a life of uselessness when the farmer upgrades to a shiny new tractor.
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.


"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." 08/17/2009

"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." 09/01/2009

"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." - Kristi Jemtegaard 10/11/2009
