"A high-quality comic that is both loads of fun and easy to read. . . . Sure to engage a new generation in the art form; kids will want to read it once, then return to it again and again." -- Booklist (starred review)
When Otto the cat meets a magical genie, he knows just what to wish for: to make the whole world orange At first, this new, bright world seems like a lot of fun, but when his mom serves orange spinach for lunch, Otto realizes that his favorite color isn't the best color for everything. Fixing this mixed-up world won't be easy though, because Otto already used up his only wish. To save the day, Otto will need his family's help, some quick thinking, and . . . a pizza? Two master cartoonists collaborate to bring all the fun and magic comics can offer to early readers.
