About the Book (Excerpts & Info)

Otis isn’t your ordinary owl. For one thing, he’s got high musical tastes—Bach, Mozart, Chopin. And human language? Mastered it. But after flying the coop from an animal rehabilitation lab, Otis undertakes his biggest challenge yet: discovering his long-lost family.

It’s a task that will set in motion a massive animal pursuit all over Otsego County, New York State, as once sworn food-chain enemies join forces to help the charismatic owl discover his roots. Meet Pee Wee, the little field mouse with a big heart who organizes his brethren to scour every barn for Otis’ family; and Mary, a fellow owl who could hold the key to what really happened that day Otis was left an orphan. Through it all, this brainy bird learns the value of having friends in low places, while showing the high-flying leadership qualities that soon make him an inter-species legend.

Join Otis on his journey to seek out his mom, dad, brother and sister in this spirited look into an animal kingdom off-limits to us humans—until now.

Deftly constructed at 51 pages, Otis: The Musical Owl is being aggressively promoted to appropriate markets with a focus on the Action & Adventure category. With U.S. wholesale distribution through Ingram and Baker & Taylor, and pervasive online availability through Amazon, Barnes & Noble and elsewhere, Otis meets consumer demand through both retail and library markets with a suggested retail price of $12.95.
