Chris Riddell
(Macmillan Children’s Books)

This is the second book in the wonderful series which describes the adventures of Ottoline Brown and her friend Mr Munroe. The inquisitive little girl, who is also a master of disguise, finds herself going to school for the first time after she meets a new friend, Cecily Forbes-Lawrence III encourages her to join her school, The Alice B. Smith School for the Differently Gifted. But as Ottoline and Mr Munroe try to get used to their new surroundings, unusual things to happen and it soon becomes clear that the school is haunted. Ottoline, not one bit worried, soon investigates.

I have always liked Chris Riddell but this series is just fabulous! The books are beautiful; the stories are funny, original and witty; the illustrations are absolutely fantastic (Riddell uses black and blue only this time as opposed to black and red in the firs installment).

and my favourite:

I am just amazed! I thought Ottoline and the Yellow Cat was good, but Ottoline Goes to School is even better! When will the promised Ottoline at Sea be published I wonder? I can’t wait!
