This work introduces Miss Ottoline Brown, an exceptionally inquisitive Mistress of Disguise, and her partner in crime, Mr Munroe.
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 Munroe.
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.
Ottoline (who luckily has a diploma from the Who-R-U Academy of Disguise) and Mr Munroe go undercover - and expose an ingenious scam masterminded by furry feline crook, the Yellow Cat.
This is a quirky mystery - adventure which is perfectly packaged and highly collectable.

Review by lalalibrarian
I loved this quick clever little book! I'm a big fan of illustrated/semi-graphic novels like this one. The black and white (with a single hint of red in each) pencil drawings were fun to look at, along with the explanatory text boxes. I can't wait to read the rest of the mysteries in this series.

MSBA Nominee 2009-2010<br/><br/>This book was pretty cute, although I was a little put-off by the lack of parents. I'd be interested to see what the others were like.

Great read! I loved it more than Molly Moon's - I wonder if it is a good read for middle schoolers, too bad the elementary library doesn't have the other books in the series :(
