Otto Grows Down
You Otto Be Careful What You Wish For!
Ever wish for something with all of your heart and not have it come true? Otto might consider you lucky. He wished his ruinous little sister was never born and it comes true when time starts going in reverse! If he doesn’t think of something fast, he’ll disappear entirely. Otto is a modern Benjamin Button who reminds us to love the ones we’re with.
"The deadpan drollery of Magoon's cartoon-style illustrations should appeal to adults as well as children, matching the quirkiness of Sussman's premise. Otto's demonstrative lack of enthusiasm as he shakes his rattle for Anna is flat-out hilarious, and his growing consternation as he begins to live his life backward comes across loud and clear. Genuine issue gracefully handled." —Kirkus Reviews
