I live in Texas and my grandkids are in Minnesota. I send them a book every month. I go into B&N to see what i want, then send it online. My grandson is 6 and is crazy about this book. He takes it with him when he visits people to show them and have them read it. His mom helps out at his school class on Wednesdays and he had her bring it to read to his classmates. He thanks me for it every time I talk to him on the phone. The story is so cute and the pictures are fantastic.

This is one of the books that I bought solely because I love, love, LOVE the artwork. Loren Long used a subdued color palette to create gorgeous, retro illustrations. Otis the tractor charmingly goofy (or goofily charming), and the calf from the back view looks almost exactly like my dog Sophie did when she was a puppy -- She's a fawn-colored Ridgeback and her ears used to stick almost straight out.  The story is timeless: Friends stick with you, friends help you out, friends make you feel special; so although this theme is used frequently in children's stories, I don't find it tired. And the story is well-told, and not overdone. This book is a must for any child interested in vintage vehicles from the '40s and '50s and appreciates a sweet story. Some of the renderings were accurate enough for my husband to identify them and he has restored two vintage cars and a truck.

Beautiful in every way! Children, and everyone who reads this sweet book to a child, will fall in love with it. Lauren Long adds a classic to the list of "must reads" for children.

This is a great story about friendship and how knowing someone well enough to help them not be scared when their in trouble. I love to read this story to my son. I also have otis and the tornado and enjoy that story as well.

This is a wonderful story -- very classic! I quickly read it in the store and it almost brought a tear to my eye. I'm sure it will appeal to both boys (the tractors) and girls (the cute calf). it's beautifully drawn and I can't wait to read it to my son tonight!!

I think this is a very nice story. I LOVE the illustrations, and it's a beautiful book. The story is meaningful and soothing, but I kept asking myself why I wanted to return to this book at bedtime and I got the "uhhhh, ok" response from my 5 year old. I think I've come to the conclusion that the story makes me feel nostalgic for what I feel was a simpler time, but my child doesn't get that feeling at all. That said, the message is well-received and it is a feel good story, if a bit slow for the kids. I would recommend this book, but don't be surprised if your kids aren't clamoring for it all the time...

Otis is a good book to read to toddlers and young readers at bedtime. The story is cute. I bought this for my nephews birthday. The book is easy to read and is just the right length for a bedtime reading. I wish the story was a little more educational. It doesn't make a lot of since in some places. However, the illustrations are well done and it's a good book for any young child who likes farm equipment.

I'm completely in love with this book about a lasting friendship. The artwork is gorgeous and cute at the same time. I plan to give this book as a gift and recommend it to many (4-8 year old) boys. It's a winner in my mind for sure!!! I'm confulsed about the low ratings that the one reviewer gave it because I didn't get that impression at all from the book.

I found this story very confusing. Why did the farmer bring home a calf without the mother? Why does Otis stop working when the yellow tractor arrives? Why does he abandon his friend, the calf, and sit behind the barn? How did the calf climb out of the mud puddle by turning in circles? I don't know if this story was meant to be depressing, but it is.
