Otto Goes to the Beach by Todd Parr

Otto goes to the beach to find a friend. He meets a crab, but the crab is too crabby. Then he meets a cat, but the cat laughs at him. Poor Otto - will he ever find someone to play with? Todd Parr's bold, humorous illustrations and simple text make this Level 1 book the perfect fit for children just starting their reading journeys. At the end of the story, Todd offers a reassuring message to readers: Sometimes it is hard to make new friends. Remember there is always someone out there to play with you! Love, Otto and Todd.

It is THE website to use for narrowing down your search for any book. Definitely knocks the socks off any other book review website.
