Otto in the CityOtto in the City

By Tom Schamp

Otto, a young cat, and his father spot some weird and wonderful sights as they drive through the village, around the traffic circle, along the highway, and into the dazzling heart of the city. Here is a bus carrying a school of fish, Santa’s reindeer at the shopping mall, and mice racing pen- and pencil-shaped cars! This wonderfully boisterous book, from renowned Belgian illustrator Tom Schamp, can be read from front to back and then, after being turned upside down, read again from back to front! The sturdy cardboard pages make it perfect for children to follow along the road themselves with their own toy cars! Children and parents alike will delight in Schamp’s highly detailed illustrations filled with clever references and visual jokes. Taking in a cross-cultural mix of city sights, Otto in the City is a charming celebration of metropolitan life and the personalities who inhabit it. Publisher: TATE Modern
