Along the way, they crash a football game, steal a peanut-shaped car and get thrown in jail. Will Otto and Crackers find Georgie? Or will trouble find them first?Big Top Otto is the second book in the Elephants Never Forget series chronicling the hilarious adventures of the tenacious pachyderm, Otto, and his wisecracking parrot pal, Crackers.
