The first book in Chris Riddell's much-loved Ottoline series.
Miss Ottoline Brown and Mr. Munroe go undercover in this beautifully-illustrated first story in the much-loved Ottoline series from Chris Riddell.
Introducing Miss Ottoline Brown, an exceptionally inquisitive Mistress of Disguise, and her partner in crime, Mr Munroe. Ottoline and the Yellow Cat is a quirky mystery-adventure from Chris Riddell, author of the award-winning Goth Girl books.
No puzzle is ever too tricky for the two of them to solve . . .
Ottoline lives in a stylish apartment in Big City with a small hairy creature called Mr Munroe. Together they look after the Brown family's eclectic collections - and dabble in a spot of detective work. So they are the first to the scene of the crime when a string of high-society dog-nappings and jewel thefts hits Big City.
Ottoline (who luckily has a diploma from the Who-R-U Academy of Disguise) and Mr Munroe go undercover – and expose an ingenious scam masterminded by furry feline crook, the Yellow Cat . . .
Winner of the Nestle Prize, and crammed with black-and-white illustrations, Ottoline and the Yellow Cat is perfect for young and reluctant readers.
Though they can be enjoyed in any order, continue the adventures of Ottoline and Mr Munroe with Ottoline Goes to School.
