"Otto" is the entertaining and humorous story that spans one man's life from childhood in Germany to adulthood in Australia. Named by his grandfather (referred to as "Opa" in German), Otto conjures up a great deal of trouble and chaos along his journey. Otto's early days seem to be made in heaven--as soon as he is able to talk and walk, his mischievous behavior is both applauded and protected by his grandfather, Opa. Otto's childhood antics include skipping school and lazily relieving himself in a gap between the wall and the bed--instead of going to the toilet. His parents become so frustrated with his behavior that they consider giving him up for adoption, but Opa continues to see only the good in his beloved grandson. It seems Otto could even get away with murder. Will Otto ever be able to take responsibility for his actions, or will his grandfather's loyalty to his grandson stand in the way? Otto's antics will surprise, amuse, and delight you as you follow his never-ending quest to find the greener pasture on the other side of the fence.
