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. 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. 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 perfectly packaged and highly collectable. Share on.
Share on:. Ottoline Brown lives in the Pepperpot Building in the Big City with her friend, a small, very shaggy creature rescued from a Norwegian bog called Mr Munroe. Her parents are away, travelling and gathering objects to include in the family collections which include Odd Shoes, Parrot Clocks, Portable Fishbowls and Emperors' Hats. Ottoline looks after the collections while being looked after by a host of service companies like The Home Cooked Meal Co. She is a very clever and inquisitive girl, with a diploma from the Who-R-U Academy of Disguise and is very interested in what's going on around her: from neighbour' conversations she listens to via the heating pipes in the laundry basement to less commonplace mysteries - and it's her who solves the mysterious series of high-society crimes baffling the police: lapdog disappearances followed by daring burglaries. Chris Riddell is an illustrator and a cartoonist he works for The Observer amongst others as well as the creator of The Edge Chronicles and the graphic side of Ottoline and The Yellow Cat is outstanding. The book is beautifully produced, with gold embossing on the red-dominated cover, semi-gloss, quality paper, carefully chosen, sophisticated type, a Royal Postcard Collection add-on in the back, and of course the illustrations themselves, black and white pen drawings using an occasional splash of red for emphasis.
