PreS. Using pure colors and elemental shapes outlined in black, Parr tells the story of dog-boy Otto. Unlike so many picture books' animal heroes, Otto has as many canine characteristics as human ones. He gets dressed and rides the school bus, but in class he learns how to wag his tail without knocking things over, and when he waits his turn for the bathroom, he is on all fours. Although text and art are simple in the extreme, young kids may be a bit befuddled by Otto's identity permutations; unlike adults, they probably won't have confronted the question, if Pluto and Goofy are both dogs, why does only Goofy wear clothes? Children who are able to grasp the concept will find things to like, and Parr's last-page message adds support for a new experience: "The first day of school is fun and exciting. You will make new friends, learn new things, and you will be really smart." Ilene Cooper
