~Written & Illustrated by Kip Noschese
Otto is a bear with a unique talent for racing cars. It's a talent that requires drivers to be fearless. Otto has only one fear. A great fear --- BEES! When he crosses paths with some very smart bees that love racing as much as he does, he might need to overcome his fear if he wants to win. (Amazon)
Otto & the Grand Prix Bees is an imaginative story that teaches young readers that when they overcome their fears they can experience great things.
Otto is a bear who loves racing, but fears bees so when a swarm of bees interfere with his big race he crashes and his hopes for winning are diminished. As the bees swarm his race car Otto runs for his life, but soon notices the bees are not following him. The bees seem to be offering their help to repair Otto's car. Otto isn't sure what to do. Can he overcome his fear and work with the bees or are his racing days over?
Otto & the Grand Prix Bees is a fast paced story filled with fun and excitement. The illustrations are charming and lively and young readers will want to hear the story again and again.
I highly recommend picking up a copy. Available at Amazon.com.
