About the Author

Jay Lynch, who wrote Otto’s story, was born in Orange, NJ, (honest, ORANGE, NJ!), and now lives in upstate New York with his wife, his dog, and way too many cats. He is the founder of Bijou Funnies, one of the first and most important underground comics of the Sixties, and for many years wrote the weekly syndicated comic strip, Phoebe and the Pigeon People. He has helped create some Topps Chewing Gum’s most popular humor products, such as Wacky Packages and Garbage Pail Kids.
 
Frank Cammuso, who drew Otto’s adventure, lives in Syracuse, New York, where he is the award-winning political cartoonist for the Syracuse Post-Standard. He is the Eisner-nominated creator of Max Hamm Fairy Tale Detective, selected as one of the Top Ten Graphic Novels of 2006 by Booklist, and is at work on Knights of the Lunch Table, a middle school version of King Arthur and his Knights. His writing has appeared in The New Yorker, The New York Times, The Village Voice and Slate.

I loved this book but possibly because I love the color orange! The illustrations were wonderful because they made the story very memorable. I think it would appeal to children because it looked like a cartoon from the TV. I hope to do a read-aloud of this book with my students.

This time around I'm reviewing the first three books published in this series of graphic novels for emergent readers. The struggling reader (8yo) enjoyed the others so much we went out and bought the first three. So he has now read the entire line of Toon Books and anxiously awaits the publication of the next set.This book is the highest reading level of the first three books in this series falling into approx. a RL of 3-4. My struggling reader had a hard time with this one and took it slowly but the story was so much fun that he didn't want to not read the book. So with a little bit more help from Mum than usually he worked his way through the book in about a week and a half. Adorable story of a boy who loves orange and when he receives a lamp that just happens to contain a Genie he is given one wish. Otto's wish is that everything should be orange. Otto soon learns that you should be careful what you wish for when cars can't tell what colour the traffic lights are and a robber on the loose has a description of everybody else, orange wearing orange clothes! Great story that will keep even reluctant readers turning the pages.Highly recommend any one of the 8 books in this series published so far. They are around 30-odd pages each and first published April 2008.
