Description

The #1 bestselling creator of "Otis "and "Little Tree" presents an homage to firefighters everywhere and to the many boys and girls who dream big of being heroes! On the farm where Otis the tractor lives, it hasn't rained in a long time and farmers all over the valley have grown anxious with water in such short supply. One hot afternoon, when Otis and his friends are resting beneath the shade of the apple tree, Otis spots something moving down in the valley: an orange tabby cat headed straight for the old barn. But then Otis sees something else that causes his engine to sputter . . . a swirl of smoke coming from the same barn. A fire! As Otis races toward the fire with his friends in tow, he spots the tabby cat mewing in alarm. Otis rushes inside to discover the source of the cat's worries--her little kittens are perched up on the hayloft, scared. Otis never hesitates. Yet even after he delivers a tractor full of kittens safely outside, their mama remains upset. Re-entering the burning barn, Otis discovers why: one tiny kitten, still too scared to move. With a friendly "chuff," Otis coaxes her down and she scampers out the door. That's when the floor collapses with a CRASH, trapping the tractor. Now Otis, the friend everyone can count on, must count on his friends. Told with a sense of play and devotion, this is a heartwarming tale that reminds readers that sometimes even those who we count on to help us need a little help themselves. From the creator of "Otis," "Otis and the Puppy," and the illustrator of "The Little Engine That Could" and "Of Thee I Sing" by President Barack Obama.

Professional reviews

"Drought, fire, distressed animals. None of these impede the unflappable Chris Sorensen. As narrator, he maintains a studied pace and lets the action-packed story of a beloved red tractor named Otis develop with all its drama. Bringing the hay into the old barn is exhausting work for Otis and the farm family. Afterward, Otis humors the bull with tug-of-war games, but when he sees a tabby cat go into the barn and then spots flames, Otis instantly shifts into rescue mode. Sorensen's steady, warm voice keeps young listeners attending to details of the story without becoming scared. When the floorboards give way, will Otis's friends be able to rescue him?
