Go, Otto, Go!

Go, Otto, Go!
By David Milgrim
Ready-to-Read, Simon Spotlight, Simon & Schuster Children’s Publishing Division, 2016.

In this newest edition of the “Adventures of Otto” easy readers series, Otto builds a rocket ship so he can go “home” to where his family is. Of course things don’t necessarily go as planned for poor Otto. Young beginning readers will enjoy not only the story of a memorable robot but also the fact that there are few words on each page. For example, there are two pages that have seven words on them (all the others tend to have between three and six words per page); however, one page with seven words has “up” constituting four of the words the other has “down” being four of the words. Young readers who love robots and easier stories will enjoy this new book—especially since they will most likely be able to read it on their own.
