Ottoline and the Yellow Cat

The Nestlé Gold winner: a witty tale of cat burglers, cunning and crime! 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?
