Otto likes rainy days. He likes splashing through puddles and catching raindrops on his tongue. But Mom is busy with paperwork, and Otto is stuck inside. He’ll just have to find something else to do…


Irrepressible Otto lets his imagination loose inside the house - with chaotic results! From his first exciting escapade to the heartwarming conclusion, Otto test his mother's patience while proving the strength of her love.
