In this book you will meet a girl named Ottoline, her best friend, Mr. Munroe, a yellow cat, a cockatoo named Clive, a bear, a mouse named Robert who Mr. Munroe came across in the kitchen last Tuesday, and many other odd or peculiar or just regular normal people.
A string of burglaries has taken place in Big City, and precious lapdogs are disappearing. Who is behind this crime wave? Ottoline and Mr. Munroe can figure it out with a little help from some friends and a clever plan.
I really like this book. I've read it seven times! When I first got it, I finished it in a day. This is one of my favorite books because - #1, it is a mystery and I love mysteries; #2, there are lots of funny jokes; #3, the illustrations are cool; and #4, you just feel like you're actually there with them when you read it, and it's very funny.
If you like mysteries, mice, lapdogs, hairy bog creatures from Norway, strange collections, or figuring out things, you'll love Ottoline and the Yellow Cat by Chris Riddell.
I give this book twelve stars out of ten!
