Horn Book Review

In this strange little book, Ottoline and her guardian (a small, hairy creature from a bog in Norway) stumble upon a missing pet mystery. They investigate and solve the crime. The text is enhanced by striking black-and-white illustrations, with judicious splashes of red, that tell much of the story while displaying Ottoline's genteel daily life. Readers will appreciate the heroine's independence and guile. (c) Copyright 2010. The Horn Book, Inc., a wholly owned subsidiary of Media Source, Inc. No redistribution permitted.
