Written and illustrated by the current Children’s Laureate Chris Riddell, Ottoline and the Yellow Cat absolutely oozes quality.
Ottoline Munro and hirsute friend Mr Munro investigate a series of burglaries amongst the rich dog-owners of Big City. Ottoline is going to need a very clever plan to solve this mystery.
This multi-award winning book is a treat to look at, thanks to Chris Riddell’s super-detailed and elegant illustrations, with which the book is absolutely packed. The prose is just as refined: the fun is all in the deadpan understatement. It’s a classic, which will look beautiful on any bookshelf. (This is not one to buy in ebook format!)
