Editorial Reviews
The Barnes & Noble Review
The star of Todd Parr's Otto Goes to Bed is off to camp -- and having a tough time -- in this marvelous, refreshing picture book. Before Otto heads away, he worries about homesickness and winds up bringing some favorite things with him, including a blanket, bone, stick, and yummy cherry pie. After he arrives, Otto finds that getting along in the great outdoors isn't so great. The other campers don't help much either, only referring to him as "Silly Otto!" when the poor doggy tries roasting marshmallows with a short stick or gets stuck in his sleeping bag. Thankfully, though, when a hike results in a harrowing meeting with a bear, the brave and kind Otto steps up and saves the day. Parr delivers more of his unique brand of feel-good book, giving young readers a playful tale that ultimately teaches a smart lesson. The author's fun, dazzling artwork will again keep readers' hearts leaping with delight, and with Otto being such a lovable character, it's no doubt that Parr fans will be begging for more of this patch-eyed pooch.

Publishers Weekly
The lovable pup stars in two paper-over-board titles by Todd Parr: Otto Has a Birthday Party and Otto Goes to Camp. In the first, Otto tests his culinary skills, making a cake for his party (using shoes, bones and a hot dog, among other ingredients), while the second finds the canine packing his favorite bone, stick and cherry pie for a trip to the wilderness.

This book has a cute story, but is very short and appeals to the 2-3 year old age group. Keep this in mind if you are planning to add to NOOK collection.
