Otto is not your ordinary bear, but bears found in storybooks these days rarely are. At night, he leaves his storybook home, clambers down the bookshelves and goes exploring. He likes to read his favorite stories and practice writing on his family's typewriter. One fateful day, he somehow gets left behind. Sad but excited by the promise of adventure, he sets out into the big, wide world in search for a new place to live. Nothing feels like home until he finds "a place that looked full of light and hope." Can anyone guess where he ends up?
