Book Review of the Week:

Otis and the Kittens by Loren Long:

This is it, the last of the Otis stories by local author/illustrator Madeira resident Loren Long!  Once again we have the tractor Otis saving a litter of kittens from a burning barn. The illustrations are fluid elongated forms that lean into the story carrying the reader from page to page. Written as a tribute to firefighters and to children everywhere who dream of being heroes.  I will be sorry to see Otis go!

I’m not sure which of my sales reps from Random House sent me this advance reading copy, but I want to say thank you! This novel is by far the best book I have read this year. The story grabs you from the beginning and you find yourself looking for places to hide so you can read in peace. Generational in scope, the novel twists and turns around a stalled writer/college professor trying to reconnect with the mother who deserted him. Shorter than the Goldfinch (yes I am comparing the two) by 144 pages this humorous and tender tale would be a great book club pick!
