Ottoline and the Yellow Cat by Chris Riddell - review
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.
