Otto the elephant continues his search for his childhood friend Georgie, a chimpanzee who was abducted from their forest home in Africa and shipped to the wilds of America by the Man with the Wooden Nose. When Otto sees a circus poster with a chimp that looks just like Georgie, he and his parrot friend, Crackers, follow the trail of the travelling circus. Along the way, they crash a football game, steal a peanut-shaped car and get thrown in jail. Will Otto and Crackers find Georgie? Or will trouble find them first? "Big Top Otto" is the second book in the Elephants Never Forget series chronicling the hilarious adventures of the tenacious pachyderm, Otto, and his wisecracking parrot pal, Crackers. Told with gentle humour and lots of visual gags, this series is an action-packed celebration of friendship and perseverance.
