2015 год. Otto would rather recite poetry than hunt mice. That wouldn't be a problem for just anyone, but it makes Otto an outsider--because Otto is an owl. The other owls don't understand why he makes friends with the forest mice, and spends his time reading books. Their taunts make Otto unhappy, but he refuses to change and instead strikes out to see the world and woo it with poetry. Soon he has most creatures of the forest charmed; and eventually even the other owls who come to appreciate his passion when he recites a rousing version of Emily Dickinson's "I am nobody, whooooo are you. . . . " Debut author-artist Vern Kousky has created both a quirky character who kids will applaud and an enchanting world whose charms are magnified by Otto's glorious poetry.
