5.0 out of 5 stars Worth the long wait ... 14 Sep 2010
By Annabel Gaskell VINE VOICE
My daughter loved the first two Ottoline books, and we've been waiting for the third for ages - so much so, she's now nearly 10. However there's so much quirky detail in these books that they transcend pigeonholing into age groups, being suitable for early readers moving up from picture books onwards.

The illustrations are divine (I don't think Chris Riddell is capable of producing an uninteresting drawing!), and Ottoline's latest adventure is great fun and full of zany humour. This time there is an added bonus of puzzle pictures for which you need the bog glasses supplied. One slight niggle with these is that you do need decent light to see the hidden pictures through the glasses properly, but this does add a whole new level of fun, and Riddell's standards remain high.

Bring on volume four - quickly please!

5.0 out of 5 stars A joy to see and read 13 Sep 2010
We waited what seemed like a long time for this third Ottoline adventure after buying the first two in quick succession. But here she is, back in great form again, offering yet another delightful, exuberant account of her surreal existence and entourage.

I've given it 5 stars but I would give it more if I could, so flamboyant, clever and subversive is Chris Riddell's imagination, so enjoyable and deliciously mischievous his character creations. Living on the edge of political correctness (what child wouldn't want to, for a day, be Ottoline? Home alone, compulsive shoe shopaholic, eavesdropping aficionado, take-away food eater, and Roving Collectors' Travel Pass holder...), for all those that fear they are themselves becoming a bit boring and conventional, here is someone to look up too. And amongst all her boundless independence and quirky personality traits, she is also ultimately quite sensible and caring, full of good feelings. Mr Munro, the mysterious and silent Mr Munro, a favourite with us, once more is out there to offer a touch of wisdom, to counteract any excesses or miscalculations by Ottoline Brown, the Queen of Eccentricity.

Breezy, fast paced, crammed with events and characters, with the occasional text-less pages to take it all in, the humour, the winks, the cross-references, I bought this one for my daughter's 5th birthday, a fierce Ottoline fan from the tender age of not even 2, when she would take "Ottoline and the Yellow Cat" under her arm wherever she went. But I had to read it first, hiding. And what a wonderful alternative this series is for very young children that are ready for something more attention demanding than a picture book.

A true gem!

5.0 out of 5 stars Ottoline goes .... 4 Jan 2011
These books are beautifully presented with very good illustrations and little things that just make them very special books. My daughter loves them and read them within days (she is 7). I will definitely buy all the other titles in the series. They would also make gorgeous birthday gifts.

Fantastic chapter book peppered with lovely illustrations to hold a child's interest. It gave my young reader more confidence to get through longer books. Also not too girly, which I welcome.

5.0 out of 5 stars My daughter loves these books 5 April 2014
By lrc
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
My daughter is dyslexic and so it has been an absolute struggle for her in regard to reading. But she absolutely loved these books and has since read and reread them countless times. The illustrations are beautiful and help tell the story. She was also so proud as she was reading what looked like a "proper book" but she wasn't overwhelmed by too much text on each page. Can not recommend them highly enough.
