Enjoyed the art and story. With any luck the quest will continue and there will be more volumes in this series. Otto, something of a misfit (literally because of his size), is a great character and so is his savvy parrot pal, Crackers, but you gotta love those gators. Walt Kelly's Pogo was clearly an influence a beneficial influence.

What if a Curious George type left a friend behind when he was kidnapped by the man in the yellow hat? And what if that friend was an elephant? The result is a book along the lines of Babar by way of Mowgli setting off on a mission to rescue Curious George. With a parrot sidekick. Can’t believe I almost forgot the parrot sidekick.

ELIZABETH RAMSEY BIRD Dec 13, 2011

Otto the elephant is depressed. No two ways about it. You’d be pretty depressed too, mind you, if your best buddy and practically step-brother, Georgie, was up and kidnapped by some crazed man with a wooden nose and a sack. After sighing and crying over his friend’s disappearance, Crackers the parrot convinces Otto participate in a kind of a crazy scheme. Clearly Georgie was kidnapped and taken to America so all they’ll have to do is go to the U.S., find him, and rescue him. Trouble is, it’s not that simple. There’s the getting there from Africa part (extra large cargo, anyone?), finding friendly folks who can help out, interviewing zoo animals, and more. But when Otto and Crackers fall in with a pack of crocodiles with ulterior motives, locating one little monkey is the least of their problems.
