ottolineOtoline is a girl who lives with Mr. Munroe, a hairy creature from a bog in Norway, in a great big house filled with collections of things from around the world that her absent parents have gathered in their constant travels.  Otoline loves to figure things out and soon she and Mr. Munroe become involved in solving a case of a feline thief who uses lap dogs to carry out her heists.  With the non-stop pace of a graphic novel, a lot of humor, and nonsense, the reader is entertained following Otoline as she, with Mr. Munroe’s help, seamlessly solves the mystery.  Black and white line drawings with a touch of red, keen detail, and sparse text tell the story with atmosphere and hilarity.

Ages 9-12, 184 pages.  Recommended.  Amelia Carling- Pelham
