No Kiss for Mother - Tomi Ungerer Having read this at the same time as Otto, I find it very odd that this is so nicely written, when Otto is not. Is it perhaps because it is written in English, whereas Otto is translated from German (presumably by the author).

A charming book - I have no idea why the publisher's hype on the cover calls it 'outrageous and controversial' - both words and pictures.
