Favorite friends return for new picture-book adventures. Flop-eared pup Otis stars in his third adventure, Dog Gone by Amanda Harvey, set at the Misty Meadow dog hotel. Otis wonders when Lucy will come back for him (""See you soon, lovely Otis,"" she says). After a scary attempt to find his way home (""leaping over thorny hedges"" and ""racing through herds of woolly beasts""), Otis returns to the safety of the hotel. Otis's latest should be a comfort to children reluctant to leave a pet behind.
