Description
Otto is a lumbering, sweet-natured elephant who can't forget his childhood chum Georgie, a smiley-faced chimpanzee who was abducted and shipped away from their forest home by the mysterious and sinister Man with the Wooden Nose. Accompanied by a wisecracking but protective parrot named Crackers, Otto decides to hop a plane and look for Georgie in America. But once they hit the wild streets of the concrete jungle, Otto and Crackers court trouble at every turn -- even becoming unwittingly involved in the seedy alligator underworld dominating the city sewers. And little do these out-of-place out-owners realise that they, too, are being doggedly pursued across the city -- by the local police! Will the authorities catch Otto and Crackers? Will Otto and Crackers find Georgie? Who is the Man with the Wooden Nose? And what's an elephant doing sporting a trench coat and fedora? AGE: 8-11 AUTHOR: Bill Slavin is an award-winning children's book illustrator with over 50 books to his credit. His works include 'Stanley's Party' and 'The Bear on the Bed'.
