Delightful both to read and to look at,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Ottoline and the Yellow Cat (Hardcover)
While my sister was visiting with her children Freddy, seven, and Hannah, five, she found this book in the library. They loved it so much that I ordered all three of them from Amazon. The book is beautifully produced, extremely imaginative, with wonderful, intricately detailed pictures spattered with the kind of explanatory notes that are just the thing for children who can't look at an image without asking "What's that?" The story is absorbing, the characters are believable (though ludicrous), and while never farcical it is full of humour. Also, as my nephew and niece found out, it is very easy to dress up as Mr Munroe by putting a bath-towel over your head. As a bonus, there is a set of eccentric postcards stuck into the book, printed in full colour. I would call it "unique", but there are two other books in the series which I think you should also read!
