About the Author

Matthew Galvin, M.D., is a psychiatrist with an expertise in children and adolescents, as well as the author of several books on topics of special concern to young people. He also teaches, writes, and conducts research in the areas of conscience formation and professional ethics. Dr. Galvin lives with his family in Indiana.


Otto is a high-octane young car whose motor runs too fast. He also has trouble pauing attention in school, is easily distracted, and says and does things without thinking. Otto and his parents visit a pit crew of special mechanics, who prescribe a medicine to help slow down Otto’s racing motor and help him find ways to become more focused and organized.

This new edition of a classic resource for young children and their families includes the latest advances in the understanding of ADHD. An expanded Note to Parents by the author discusses treatment approaches and current findings about medications, including their possible side effects.


"The real test was our son, who thought it was terrific, the best."
—Member, CHADD (Children and Adults With ADD), New York City Chapter

"Otto is an ideal vehicle for helping young children understand their difficulties."
—California Association of Resource Specialists
