In the short time that Otis has been in stores, readers—young and old—have taken to it in the same way that readers throughout the years have embraced many of our most celebrated picture books. Loren Long has created a story that is powerful in its simplicity and timelessness, one with a place on the shelf alongside the classics we all grew up reading. And now a whole new age group will fall in love with Otis, the friendly little tractor, thanks to this board book edition. Let the cries of putt puff puttedy chuff begin!

The Washington Post - Kristi Jemtegaard

How this little left-behind machine goes from has-been to hero is an all-too-familiar but nonetheless satisfying trope that will leave young readers with smiles as big as Otis's goofy grin. Loren Long's almost monochromatic palette, punctuated by reds and yellows, focuses all the attention exactly where it needs to be: on the David-and-Goliath disparity between Otis and his replacement.
