James Otis Kaler (1848-1912) was an American journalist and author of children's literature. He used the pen name James Otis. He got a job with the Boston Journal when he was in his teens. Later, he went on to work as a journalist or editor for various newspapers, a superintendent at schools, and a publicity man at a circus.
