Synopsis

Otto in the City by Tom Schamp

Otto and his father spot some weird and wonderful sights as they drive through the village, around the roundabout, along the highway, and into the dazzling heart of the city. A bus carrying a school of fish; santa's reindeer at the shopping mall; Tommy and Bic racing their pencil and pen-shaped cars! This wonderfully boisterous book, from renowned Belgian illustrator Tom Schamp, has sturdy cardboard pages that make it perfect for driving toy cars over, and as Otto and his father return home at the end of the day the story continues with them, along the top of the pages. 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.
