Katie Cleminson’s enchanting story of a bear who becomes separated from the book that has always been his home, and his search for a new place to live, seems particularly relevant right now, published as it is at a time when our national libraries (one of which eventually proves to be the perfect environment for Otto) are under such threat. Whether or not Cleminson had campaigning in mind when she came up with the original idea for her endearing little book bear – not to mention his ultimate habitat – it can surely never be anything but a positive thing for those of us involved in the care and education of young children to get them excited and enthusiastic about the magical possibilities of their local library… and sharing Otto’s adventure is the perfect way to do just that.
