PreS-Gr 1-Otto is back in his next big adventure-heading to school. Starting with his favorite breakfast, "cereal, juice, and a banana split," the pup faces a child's typical first-day worries but has a good time when he settles in. His lessons include learning to wag his tail without knocking things over; finding out that shoes are for wearing and not chewing; and sharing toys and games-all capped with the refrain of "Good dog, Otto!" Parr uses his trademark bold primary colors, blocky simple characters, and heavy black line to illustrate this tale. He keeps the focus on the fun while sharing insights on this new experience.-Marge Loch-Wouters, Menasha's Public Library, WI Copyright 2005 Reed Business Information.
