To begin with who wouldn’t want to pick up this book and take a look; the cover is so appealing.
Ottoline is a girl who lives with her best friend Mr Munroe; a Norwegian bog creature. Her parents are away travelling leaving her at home to look after the collections (of which there are intricate illustrations).
Ottoline is intrigued by a series of high-powered burglaries which have taken place but remain unsolved. Meanwhile Mr Munroe has noticed a strange number of lost lap-dog posters appearing in the neighbourhood. Is there a connection?
Ottoline and Mr Munroe soon come up with a plan, will the mysteries be solved?
Every page is illustrated with beautiful line drawings and the story moves along quickly.
I would recommend this book to early readers who are looking for an exciting story, 6 years upwards.
