Otto loves the color orange. He loves it so much that when a genie gives him the opportunity to make a wish, he knows just what to wish for: everything should be orange! At first everything seems awesome, but then Otto starts realizing that maybe not everything should be orange after all... I love TOON books. They're fun, clever, and have such great humour. Otto's Orange Day is no exception. Divided into three chapters, it's a good choice for readers who are making the jump from reading together to reading on their own. The storyline of 'be careful what you wish for' isn't new, but I love how Otto handles it, and I admit that I was surprised by how the ending was resolved. Definitely check this (and other TOON books) out.
