OTIS DOODA: STRANGE BUT TRUE, by Ellen Potter

Image

 

The story: Otis Dooda and his “hillbilly” family have just moved to the 35th floor of Tidwell Towers in New York City, and immediately, strange things start happening. He meets a guy with a miniature pony disguised as a dog that randomly lets off massive fart bombs. He’s immediately cursed by Potted Plant Guy, who predicts he’s going to break all his bones by the full moon. And it happens!  Luckily, though…it doesn’t hurt at all. Read this story and prepare to laugh out loud!

Mrs. Friend’s opinion: Yes, Otis is probably younger than you. But the book is just so funny that even older kids will like it. I did, and I’m way older than any kid!
