Otto's Orange Day


OTTO'S ORANGE DAY; Frank Cammuso and Jay Lynch; New York: RAW, Jr., 2008. 40 pgs. Comics.
Otto loves the color orange, and when an orange package arrives with a gold lamp from Aunt Sally Lee, he rubs it, produces a genie, and wishes everything in the world were orange. After the genie obliges, Otto wonders why there are so many car crashes (no red or green lights), how the police will catch "the orange robber," and whether he can choke down an orange pork chop and orange mashed potatoes. These days when graphic novels are often iffy for the little dudes, this entry in the Toon Book series provides bright and cautionary fun for young children.
