Additional Information

Item details
Otto and his father spot some weird and wonderful sights as they drive through the village, around the roundabout, along the highway, and into the dazzling heart of the city. A bus carrying a school of fish; santa’s reindeer at the shopping mall; Tommy and Bic racing their pencil and pen-shaped cars!

This wonderfully boisterous book, from renowned Belgian illustrator Tom schamp, has sturdy cardboard pages that make it perfect for driving toy cars over, and as Otto and his father return home at the end of the day the story continues with them, along the top of the pages. Children and parents alike will delight in schamp’s highly detailed illustrations filled with clever references and visual jokes. Taking in a cross-cultural mix of city sights, Otto Drives Back and Forth in the City is a charming celebration of metropolitan life and the personalities who inhabit it.

Tom Schamp is a renowned Belgian illustrator with a very distinctive style whose work is sought after by an international range of clients. He has illustrated over 20 books for children, and also works on magazines, newspapers, toys, posters, stamps, calendars, and album covers.
