The Barnes & Noble Review
Author/illustrator extraordinaire Todd Parr helps get rid of the bedtime blues in this lively picture book debuting Otto!

Parr's lovable pooch isn't ready for sleep -- "he wishes he didn't have to stop doing all the fun things he does all day." Otto's most favorite activities include "digging for bones, chasing his tail, rolling in the mud," and more. Unfortunately, taking a bath and "brushing his teeth with chicken-flavored toothpaste" don't help, but when he snuggles up and thinks about happy things, the hound has no trouble falling asleep.

No bones about it, Otto is a canine kids will adore! A peppy dog who shows that going to bed is a breeze "when you dream about all your favorite things," Otto's feelings and experiences are sure to have kids nodding in understanding. With artwork that's as fresh and lively as ever, Parr has created an awesome, feel-good friend. Matt Warner

This is such a great book. I read it to my step-daughter when her mother had to move overseas for a year. It helped her to think about and dream about her mommy and she wasn't so sad anymore. It is a must share book. Thanks!

I have used Todd Parr's Otto Goes to the Beach in my preschool unit and the students just love Otto - they echo the repeating line in the text 'Poor Otto!'. It is a great way to open a school year, with Otto looking to make a new friend. The illustrations are simple and easy for young children to understand and imitate with their own drawings. Text is simple and predictable. Using a cardboard replica, we have made him our weather dog and use clothes like a paper doll to dress him for the day. We are looking forward to more adventures for Otto!
