And the farmer, who had so easily replaced Otis, is open-minded enough to discover that the old tractor still has much to offer. Parents need to know that Otis , by Loren Long , is the first in a popular series about a friendly, helpful little tractor.

Otis and the Puppy
When a scared calf arrives in his barn, his soft putt-puffs soothe the new arrival and the two become close companions. The calf, lonely and sad, one day trudges into a muddy pond and gets stuck, sinking deeper and deeper. The harder everyone works to rescue her, the more the frightened calf sinks.
All seems lost until her old friend, roused by her cries, putt-puffs to her aid. Otis will feel like an old familiar storybook to parents. The subdued palette, strong lines, and soft texture give the book the feel of a classic. The prose flows smoothly and gently, and the illustrations of the cavorting tractor and calf offer plenty of energy and humor.
