Summary

Summary

Otto takes on the great outdoors. But-oh no, fish don't like Otto's bone, his stick is too short to roast marshmallows, and he doesn't pack his knapsack with all the 'right' things. But when the campers come upon a hungry bear, Otto's cherry pie saves the day!


Author Notes

Todd Parr was born on July 9, 1962. In 1995 he moved to San Francisco, California where he pursued a career as an artist. After being rejected by many galleries, he showed his artwork at Wolfgang Puck's restaurant Postrio. This exhibit led to him creating merchandise for Macy's and his own children's clothing line.

He is the author and illustrator of over 30 children's books which contain simple messages about acceptance, difference, and empowerment including The Thankful Book. In 2005 the preschool television show he created, ToddWorld, premiered on TLC and Discovery Kids.

Publisher's Weekly Review

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.
