Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal
K-Gr 4—Otis's parents are divorcing, and this book shows how he and his siblings are affected. He expresses many of the feelings and emotions children encounter daily when struggling with this situation. Examples pepper the story line and cover many of the questions that youngsters may have. The author offers comforting and helpful suggestions for many of the issues Otis must deal with when he visits his mom or his dad. For example, when he visits them, he feels like he is the family spy or the family messenger. Many of Otis's feelings are addressed through the dialogue between the boy and his grandmother. The text is based on the three C's: "I didn't Cause it," "I can't Control it," and "I'll just have to learn to Cope with it." The cartoon drawings are bright and colorful, and the characters have realistic expressions. This picture book would be well used by parents and school personnel. An additional purchase where books on this topic are needed in library parenting or family sections.—Melissa Smith, Royal Oak Public Library, MI
