Description

Loren Long-recipient of two Golden Kite Awards-delivers a whimsical story of friendship and perseverance. Otis is a kind, hardworking farm tractor who befriends a motherless calf. After work, he and his pal love frolicking together in the fields-until one day Otis is replaced by a new tractor. Left to rust in the weeds, he feels useless and no longer wants to play. But when the calf gets in trouble-and firemen can't even help-Otis revs up to rescue his friend. "[Otis] will certainly draw nostalgic adults [and] find a welcome from younger audiences too."-Kirkus Reviews

Professional reviews

"Children's literature favorites Mike Mulligan and his steam shovel and Ferdinand the Bull have a new friend in Otis the tractor. When the farmer brings home a big, shiny yellow tractor and moves Otis out of his stall, it seems Otis will be obsolete and the farm's new little calf will be without his barn-mate. Chris Sorensen is an unobtrusive narrator. His quiet voice and leisurely pace let the farm drama unfold on its own. Choosing crucial moments to accentuate, Sorensen emphasizes an announcement of a calf-judging contest, slows his words as the calf sinks deeper and d-e-e-p-e-r into a pond, and proudly "puff, putts" as the calf and Otis parade through town. Young listeners will enjoy joining the two friends as they contentedly watch the farm from under the apple tree. A.R. (c) AudioFile 2010, Portland, Maine"
