Otis Dooda by Ellen Potter

Omnibus Books, 2013. ISBN 9781742990200.
(Age: 10+) Otis Dooda is a fun filled story, describing the adventures of Otis during his first week in New York City. I thoroughly enjoyed reading about his 'true' adventure and most children will be hooked from the first page.
Imagine being cursed by a plant, putting up with a smelly horse (disguised as a dog) and attacked by pooping, mechanical birds. All that in one week!
Otis Dooda is a quick moving story, guaranteed to get independent readers aged 10+ reading - especially boys. Readers will meet Otis's rat loving brother, his energetic mother and his chip eating dad. They will be entertained by the crazy antics of Otis's new friends and they will giggle at the funny illustrations.
