Otis and the Tornado
Otis and all his farm friends are enjoying a summer’s day,
but the bull has no interest in playing and stays in his pen. Suddenly the day
turns frightening and stormy: it’s a tornado! Otis takes all of the animals to
safety, but the bull is still locked in his pen! Quick as his tires will take
him, Otis putt puff puttedy chuffs back to the farm to save the day.
Otis Loves to Play
In this new story, the beloved tractor loves to play with
his friends - the calf, the cows, the horses, and of course, the ducks.
Together, they jump, they play, they chase, and they march. And they always
have fun—young listeners will, too!
Otis and the Puppy
Otis and his farm friends love to play hide-and-seek. Otis
especially loves to be “It,” finding his friends as they hide. Yet when the
newest addition to the farm—a bounding puppy who can’t sit still and has a
habit of licking faces—tries to hide, he finds his attention wandering and is
soon lost in the forest. Night falls and Otis, knowing his new friend is afraid
of the dark, sets out to find him. There’s just one problem: Otis is also
afraid of the dark. His friend is alone and in need, though, so Otis takes a
deep breath, counts to ten, and sets off on a different game of hide-and-seek.
An Otis Christmas
It’s Christmas Eve on the farm where Otis and all of his
friends live. The farmer has given Otis his first real Christmas present—a
shiny new horn! A tree has been decorated, a big snowstorm is on its way, and
all of the animals are excited. Best of all, one of the horses on the farm is
about to give birth to a foal! Yet in the middle of the night the horse begins
neighing in pain and when the farmer says, “We’d better get Doc Baker out here
or we’ll lose ‘em both,” Otis knows the horse is in trouble. Snow has been
falling hard for hours and the roads are unpassable. How will they get Doc?
Otis to the rescue! He knows a shortcut through the woods and he arrives at the
doc’s house flashing his headlights and revving his engine. When Doc fails to
awake, Otis uses his new horn. Then, with Doc in tow, he races back to the farm
just in time for a Christmas miracle … and the arrival of a new friend to play
with. Download and start listening now!
