Otis

by Loren Long

Otis was a funny, lovable, determined little tractor who worked proudly on his farm and then played happily after every day's work. When the farmer bought a sad little calf, Otis befriended him and sang him to sleep with his "putt puff puttedy chuff." Otis didn't see the problems that were ahead for him. What would happen when the farmer replaced him with a bigger, flashier tractor and put him out to pasture. Would the help he gave to the little calf friend be repaid to him? Would Otis find a place to belong?

Otis promises to become a new classic! It's a Kids' Wings Favorite!
