Ottoline and the Yellow Cat

(5 reviews with an average rating of 5 out of 5)

Publisher: Pan Macmillan

Ottoline lives with her hairy companion Mr Munroe, on the 24th floor of the Pepperpot Building. Her parents travel the world collecting interesting things but do ensure she is looked after by the Home Cooked Meal Co. and Smith&Smith Pillow Plumping Technicians.

Ottoline is good at solving mysteries, in part due to her eavesdropping habit and in part because of her qualification as a mistress of disguise.

With the help of Mr Munroe, Ottoline sets out to solve a spate of burglaries in her neighbourhood, which she links to the disappearance of lap-dogs all over the city.

This highly illustrated, quirky book is great fun to read. The retro illustrations are intricate, with plenty of visual asides to discover.
