Otto Goes to Bed
Todd Parr. Megan Tingley Books, $9.95 (24pp) ISBN 978-0-316-73873-6
Todd Parr presents a motley mutt named Otto in two paper-over-board titles, Otto Goes to the Beach and Otto Goes to Bed. In Beach, Otto is lonely until he finds a girl dog who likes to play with him; in Bed, Otto doesn't want to go to bed until he realizes he can dream about all his favorite things. Both books feature Todd's signature simplified figures in neon colors and thick black outlines-and close with a personal lesson signed ""Love, Otto and Todd.""
