ottoOtto goes North by Ulrika Kestere. Pub. Gecko Press, 2019

Otto the Lemur has cycled months, possibly years, to visit his friends in the north, Lisa the lynx and Nils the bear, and to see and paint the northern lights.

When he arrives on his red bike Lisa stops mowing the roof and they greet each other like long lost friends and settle down for tea.

But the climate is too cold for Otto and they need to thaw him out in the sauna. Nils and Lisa consult Lena the fox and the three decide to use their own fur dyed different colours and knit Otto a sweater to keep warm.

Will he paint the northern lights though? Check it and see.

Beautifully illustrated and an out there idea. Good read-a-loud for juniors.
