Product Description:

From Loren Long: A Letter to Fans

Dear Reader,

It was ancient and rusty but steady and dependable and still contributed to the farm.

let alone write and illustrate my own story about a little tractor named Otis.

Those days back on the horse farm served as part of the inspiration for Otis, the little tractor who loves to work hard and play hard with his friends on the farm that he loves.

Otis and the Tornado is about friendship and loyalty. A character and a book that becomes a trusted friend, who loves to have fun and who is fiercely loyal, brave and trustworthy.

In this new Otis story you'll read how Otis encounters a storm but also how he handles a new character on the farm that is just plain mean.

Otis and the Tornado is about empathy and bravery.

And together you'll get to know a spunky little tractor who works hard and plays hard and always has time for another friend.

Putt-puff!

Loren
