Otto is a Book Bear and nothing makes him happier than when people read his book. But he also has a very special secret - when no one is looking he can come to life and explore the house. But one day something terrible happens: Otto's book is left behind when the family moves away, and now there is no one to read Otto! Otto must set off on his biggest adventure yet - to find a new home. But where is the best place for a Book Bear to live?

MEDIA REVIEWS
"With colourful, bold-line illustrations, this is a charming story for age three and up" -- Mary Arrigan * Irish Examiner *
"The thickly inked illustrations surrounded by lots of white space have an uncluttered, simple look that is appropriate for young readers . . . A sweet tale" -- Martha Simpson * School Library Journal *
"Cleminson, selected as one of Booktrust's Best New Illustrators for her lovely, inky line, subtle sense of colour and child-friendly playfulness, has produced an ideal story for communicating the magic of reading" -- Nicolette Jones * The Sunday Times *
"Katie captured the judges' imagination with her dreamy illustrations" * Guardian *
"There's something genially old-fashioned about it all. Otto endures hardship and adventure (including the brush-off he receives from a pair of alley cats) as he flees his old existence and finds new sources of companionship. In this case, the animal adrift ends up with fellow story characters as well as with human readers, who, as they will in real life too, want to keep Otto around" -- Pamela Paul * The New York Times *

“Wonderful!”

Otto the Book Bear is a wonderful tale about a curious bear that lives in a book, which can leave its pages when no one is looking to explore the world. This delightful story is the subtle champion of our libraries,... More
