Product Details


* “As always, perseverance, teamwork, and a heart of gold pay off for Otis and his friends. When read aloud, the text flows off the tongue with sounds and words that extend the imagery created in the attractive gouache and pencil illustrations. The compositions make great use of perspective and motion and are expertly laid out . . . There are wonderful textured details that bring the story to life. [T]he perfect lapsit read-aloud, combining the ever-popular subjects of tractors, farm animals, and firefighters.”–School Library Journal, STARRED REVIEW

“Long’s seventh bucolic tale of an antique tractor with a smiling face and a good heart will please the little chuffer’s many fans. The dynamic, fluid illustrations with a retro-rural vibe bring to mind Norman Rockwell’s America with a Saturday comics spin. The theme of teamwork played out several times through the tale is communicated as simply as the tale itself. Keep on puffin’, Otis!”–Kirkus Reviews

“Long creates a powerful sense of suspense and danger as charcoal smoke gathers in the sky and bright flames lick the beams of the barn as Otis goes to work, but bravery, loyalty, and gritty determination are the real stars of the story—traits that Otis and his animal friends have in ample supply.”–Publishers Weekly
