Big Top Otto by Bill Slavin

Otto the elephant is on a search for Georgie, the monkey, and he won't quit!

Kids Can Press and Edelweiss gave me the opportunity to read this ebook for review (thank you).  It's being published this month, so check for a copy at your local bookstore.

This is a graphic novel for young ones and it's a fun read.  Otto is not the most graceful elephant and he's allergic to peanuts.  He's travelling with a parrot friend (this is good, he's pretty smart) and he's determined to find Georgie.  He finds a big monkey alright, but it's a display model advertising french fries.  

Otto busts into a football game by accident, ends up stealing a peanut car during an escape, finds other monkeys but not Georgie and almost gets captured himself!

Take a fun romp through the countryside with the two rescuers and watch out for that guy trying to capture them for the zoo.  You won't be bored.

Happy reading.
