LoveReading View on Ottoline Goes To School

Shortlisted for the prestigious Sheffield Children's Book Award 2009 A wonderful quirky mystery adventure that follows the story of Miss Ottoline Brown, the inquisitive Mistress of Disguise, and her partner in crime, her hairy and helpful friend, Mr Munroe, first introduced in Ottoline and the Yellow Cat. No secret is ever too scary (eventhough the school is more than a bit scary for Munroe) for the two of them to discover together as well as puzzles to solve.  Riddell’s sumptuous illustrations interspersed throughout the text make this ideal for 7-9 year olds as well as younger children whose parents want to read it with their child.  It really is a beautiful production of a book – something to truly treasure and return to in years to come.  A classic is born.
