Product Description

Review

"With colourful, bold-line illustrations, this is a charming story for age three and up" (Mary Arrigan Irish Examiner)

"The thickly inked illustrations surrounded by lots of white space have an uncluttered, simple look that is appropriate for young readers . . . A sweet tale" (Martha Simpson School Library Journal)

"Cleminson, selected as one of Booktrust's Best New Illustrators for her lovely, inky line, subtle sense of colour and child-friendly playfulness, has produced an ideal story for communicating the magic of reading" (Nicolette Jones The Sunday Times)

"Katie captured the judges' imagination with her dreamy illustrations" (Guardian)

"There's something genially old-fashioned about it all. Otto endures hardship and adventure (including the brush-off he receives from a pair of alley cats) as he flees his old existence and finds new sources of companionship. In this case, the animal adrift ends up with fellow story characters as well as with human readers, who, as they will in real life too, want to keep Otto around" (Pamela Paul The New York Times)

My 1 year old daughter has listened to us reading this to her for the last few months and she is obsessed with this charming little bear - her first word was bear! I love that the library is the hero - quite apart from the beautiful illustrations and the wonderful story. The edition is big enough for little hands to turn pages and the quality is great. Overall I am considering buying it again just in case it disappears as it is an absolute joy and we would be lost at bedtime without it.

Katie Cleminson is the author of Box of Tricks and Wake Up as well as this wonderful picture book. Otto is a Book Bear, who lives in a book, but enjoys climbing out to explore the house he lives in and practice his writing. One day, while he out of his book, the family move and leave him stranded. Otto doesn't like being alone, so he heads out to try to find a new home and a warm book to live in. Luckily, he comes across the library, where he finds many, many books, as well as many book creatures, including another book bear to be his friend.

This is just a wonderful story for young children, perhaps best suited for the 2-4 age group. It has a lovely warm texture and feeling - not only to the story, but also to the illustrations. It also encourages a love of books, libraries and reading. What could be better? This author just keeps on getting better and better, a lovely bedtime story.

Loved this book. It's a great read and that a bear lives in a book and finds other animals that also live in books brings another dimension to it. The illustrations bring the book alive... Like the book bear!

Absolutely love this book and so do my twins. Otto is a firm favourite. Decided to buy it after taking it out of the library three times at the request of my toddlers.

I bought this book for a little boy called Otto as a present. It is a lovely story and is a much loved request for his bedtime story.
