David's other books include My Friend Lucky; Here in Space; and Cows Can't Fly, an IRA/CBC Children's Choice Winner. He lives in Rhode Island with his wife, Kyra, and their infant son, Wyatt, who has already eaten three copies of See Otto.

It's easy for a beginner to master, so it builds confidence.
English Teacher
The Otto books are very simple, with lots of word/sound repetition -- the perfect beginning reader books.
Coastal Cat
These books are great for parents with a child just learning to read.

I love this book, more importantly, my 5 year old loves this book! Otto, a little robot, launches into space (perched upon the nose cone of his rocket), confronts an angry rhino and ends up befriending two artistic monkeys. "See Otto" is told in the style of the old Dick and Jane primers, only much, much better: the graphics are bold and adorable and the humor rye and clever. It will enchant kids and leave adults wishing "See Otto" was around when they were beginning readers.

The wonderful visual humor in this book delighted my child and inspired him to read! My son often finds reading tedious but Otto's charm and humor won him over. Plus Otto's a robot from space -- how cool is that? The Otto books are very simple, with lots of word/sound repetition -- the perfect beginning reader books. We went on to read all the Otto books we could put our hands on and have given these books to other kindergarten friends for birthday presents.

Just like the "Dick and Jane" books, "Otto" uses one syllable words and repetition to help children learn to read. Though many books claim to be made for beginners, they contain many difficult words that those new to reading just can't understand. Not only would I recommend this book to anyone (including adults that are having problems for whatever reason), but I intend to buy more in the series. Plus, it's cute and will make you laugh.

I have had a hard time finding books for my daughter who is not a fan of reading, and who is only comfortable with simple words with only short vowel sounds. The Otto books are quite literally the BEST books out there fitting my criteria. And on top of that, I LOVE them personally. They make me laugh! There is so much subtlety between the words of the story and the illustrations. Look no farther for books to get your child reading!

So many of the "easy reader" books are too challenging and therefore too frustrating for kids who are just beginning to read. This book is just right. It's easy for a beginner to master, so it builds confidence. This is also a cute and funny book. I makes my 5-year-old laugh out loud.

The cutest pre-reading books currently out on the market. The characters are adorable and well drawn. The minimalist stories are fun and entertaining. Much more interesting than See Spot Run!

This was my son's first book that he read in its entirety - excellent pictures, cues. We got it from the library and wanted it for a keepsake.
