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!
