An Otis Christmas << Prev page
Loren Long

Oh! Oh! Oh! There's no way you can not smile your way through this book and have waves of goosebumps up down and down your body. This is particularly amazing given that Otis is a tractor and the hero of this very wonderful story.

All is being readied for Christmas on the snow-covered farm. The farmer is hanging lights, wreaths, and trimmings for the tree and has fed the animals their traditional Christmas meal of hot bran mash with chopped apples and brown sugar. He's even opened a package for Otis, the alarmingly irresistible tractor, and pulled out a shiny horn. ''Merry Christmas, Otis! A special tractor needs a special horn.''

As the farmer turns in that evening, he bids good night to the animals with, ''Sleep tight, all, a big snow is heading our way.'' Wouldn't you know that the very pregnant horse has complications in the middle of the night that require Doc Baker's assistance? And wouldn't you know that the predicted big snow has already made roads so impassable that only a tractor can even hope to get through? And wouldn't you know that Otis summons all his courage to find his way on the trackless snow to Doc Baker's house? And that since flashing his headlights doesn't wake up Doc, the new horn saves the day?

I won't tell you more. You'll have to experience the drama, suspense, sense of wonder, and joy for yourself. As I said, there will be smiles, goosebumps, and, if you're like me, a lump in your throat. You'll want to keep this book with your most cherished Christmas keepsakes. Your family will want to read it every year, and each year it will be like a visit from an old friend.
