Overview

Otto must rescue a friend who is swept away by a gust of wind in this Pre-level 1 Ready-to-Read by New York Times bestselling author/illustrator, David Milgrim, part of the award-winning, star-reviewed The Adventures of Otto series.

Meet Otto’s friend, Pip. Pip wants Otto’s balloon. Otto’s balloon is very, very big. Pip is very, very small. So when Otto gives Pip his balloon, a breeze sweeps Pip and the balloon up, up, and away! It’s up to Otto (with some help from Zee the Bee) to rescue his friend. Help, Otto, help!

This Pre-level 1 Ready-to-Read with bright illustrations and minimal text is perfect for the true emergent reader.

Editorial Reviews

Kirkus Reviews
In his third beginning reader about Otto the robot, Milgrim (See Otto, 2002, etc.) introduces another new friend for Otto, a little mouse named Pip. The simple plot involves a large balloon that Otto kindly shares with Pip after the mouse has a rather funny pointing attack. (Pip seems to be in that I-point-and-I-want-it phase common with one-year-olds.) The big purple balloon is large enough to carry Pip up and away over the clouds, until Pip runs into Zee the bee. ("Oops, there goes Pip.") Otto flies a plane up to rescue Pip ("Hurry, Otto, Hurry"), but they crash (and splash) in front of some hippos with another big balloon, and the story ends as it begins, with a droll "See Pip point." Milgrim again succeeds in the difficult challenge of creating a real, funny story with just a few simple words. His illustrations utilize lots of motion and basic geometric shapes with heavy black outlines, all against pastel backgrounds with text set in an extra-large typeface. Emergent readers will like the humor in little Pip’s pointed requests, and more engaging adventures for Otto and Pip will be welcome additions to the limited selection of funny stories for children just beginning to read. (Easy reader. 5-7)
