Product description

The Nestlé Gold winner! Cat burglers, crimes and a hairy bog critter. Love it. Think all sleuths wear a funny hat like Sherlock Holmes? Not Miss Ottoline Brown. She wears whatever she likes. (She’s a mistress of disguise.) And who needs a human sidekick when you can have a hairy bog creature called Mr Munroe as your partner in not-crime? Ottoline and Mr Munroe live in a stylish apartment in Big City, looking after the Brown family’s posh antiques – and dabbling in a spot of detective work. When Big City is rocked by a series of high-society dognappings and jewel thefts, they’re first on the scene. But are they smart enough to catch the cunning Yellow Cat?

  • A quirky detective story full of wit and intrigue
  • Chris Riddell is the current Children’s Laureate
  • Winner of the Nestlé Prize and the Red House Award
  • Bursting with Chris’s stunningly detailed artwork

“Possibly the most instantly covetable book ever published.” Sunday Telegraph

    I loved this book; it has lots of funny features, great illustrations, and it has been awarded many awards because of its sheer greatness! Chris Riddell is a very good author, and I have read many of his other books such as two of his books from the Goth Girl series which was quite okay.

    I loved this book it was the first time I read a Chris Riddeal and made me interested in all the other ones and now I have read otto line at sea . But now I gust need to read ottoline goes to school then after that I will start reading goth girl. I hope the goth gir is a bit longer. So if you scholastic like this pass it on to Chris Riddeal. so if you ever do read this chris riddeal this is my one thing to say WRITE ANOTHER OTTOLINE BOOK BECAUSE THEY ARE AMAZING!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    A really good book the illustrations are amazing and the story is unpredictable and you read through and you get a scare, a laugh, a scream, and a rush of curiosity😄

    Very good, kind of long for my age though! It was creative and adventurous. My favourite character was Mr Munroe. I would recommend this book to ages 6+

    I like how ottoline likes to solve mysteries and how the illustrator drew the pictures in black and white and put bits of red in
