On the farm where Otis the tractor lives, the farmer has introduced someone new a scarecrow to shoo away the pesky crows. But when Otis and the animals greet the scarecrow with friendly smiles, the scarecrow's frown never leaves his face. So everyone leaves him alone. Then one day, when a cold autumn rain sets in, Otis and the animals snuggle close and play Otis's favorite game: the quiet game. Otis knows the puppy and ducks can't sit still for long, and soon the farm friends begin to giggle and squirm, feeling warmed by one another's friendship . . . but on this day, Otis can't seem to take his eyes off the lonely figure in the cornfield. A deeply resonant book about subtle acts of compassion and standing up for others, featuring everyone's favorite tractor, Otis. Praise for Otis: *** 'Long's gouache and pencil artwork is stunning. . . the satisfying conclusion that speaks of a place for everyone is sure to ring true to children.' Starred Review, School Library Journal (Otis)*** *** 'The illustrations wonderfully enhance the story, from the joy of the animals prancing around the Christmas tree to Otis' expressive responses to the events around him.' Starred Review, Booklist (An Otis Christmas)*** 'Hearkens to the golden age of picture books, with a style and tone that recall the work of Virginia Lee Burton and Munro Leaf.' Booklist (Otis and the Tornado) 'Fans of Otis will not be disappointed with the satisfying ending that results in a creative solution and a most happy reunion. Seek this out' ame on!'' Kirkus Reviews (Otis and the Puppy).
