Reviewed with David Milgrim's Ride Otto Ride! K-Gr. 1. See Otto and Ride Otto Ride! , for very beginning readers offer simple texts and comical illustrations. Otto, an adventurous little robot, leaves his home in See Otto and travels to an Earth-like planet. Crashing to the ground in front of an angry rhinoceros, Otto is soon propelled by the rhino's horn into the treetops, where he meets two monkeys as unflappable and good-humored as himself. In Ride Otto Ride , Otto and his two primate pals ride an elephant and offer to share their transportation with every animal they meet. When the elephant takes on one too many (a beetle) and collapses, the enterprising robot builds a wagon, so the little animals can pull their big friend to the watering hole. Though young readers may not catch the ironic echoes of the Dick and Jane series in the text, they will find a lot to like in Otto's world, with its clearly delineated characters, occasional pratfalls, and humorous edge. The energetic drawings and the muted palette are quirkier than those usually seen in books for young readers. An appealing option for children just beginning to read and feeling as hopeful and adventurous as Otto.
Horn Book
Boring old Dick and Jane have been replaced with a funny robot and his animal friends in these simplest of beginning readers. With chunky shapes and heavy black outline, the personable illustrations provide a lively embellishment for text that at times is just one repeated word, ("Walk, walk, walk, walk, walk") but still manages to tell a coherent, entertaining story.
Kirkus Reviews
"Look, here comes Otto!" Milgrim ( My Friend Lucky , 2002, etc.) introduces a robot named Otto in the first of a series for emergent readers, and he succeeds quite well in telling a complete and humorous story using a basic vocabulary of just 21 words. Otto is a robot from another planet who falls to earth when his spaceship runs out of gas. ("See Otto fall.") He meets an unfriendly rhinoceros who gives chase. ("Run, Otto, run!") The rhino tosses Otto into a tree where some friendly monkeys are painting, causing the monkeys, Otto, and the paint pots to tumble to the ground. ("See paint fly.") Though the limited vocabulary imposes its own restraints, Milgrim uses visual humor with a touch of irony to craft a real story with enough action to appeal to new readers. His illustrations have a bold flair with thick black outlines, a contemporary pastel palette of cool colors, and an appealing main character who seems ready to get into more mischief with those monkeys. The next story in the series is also available ( Ride, Otto, Ride , ISBN: 0-689-84417-4). More, Otto, more. (Easy reader. 5-7)
