About the Author:

Chris Riddell is an accomplished artist and political cartoonist for the Observer, who has enjoyed great acclaim for his books for children. His books have won a number of major prizes including the 2001 and 2004 Kate Greenaway Medals, and his previous work for Macmillan includes MUDDLE EARTH and the BLOBHEADS series, with Paul Stewart. Chris lives in Brighton with his family.

From Booklist:

Don’t let the page count fool you. This “novel” is probably more pictures than text. It’s not, however, a graphic novel in the sense of a sequential telling; nor does it follow the model Brian Selznick used so effectively in The Invention of Hugo Cabret (2007), where art replaced text to further the story. The pictures here simply add texture to the words they accompany—but what a delight they are. Award-winning British cartoonist Riddell (the Edge Chronicles, with Paul Stewart) illustrates in pen and ink, enhanced by crosshatching and a smattering of bright red, to concoct a cast of quirky characters and amazingly detailed backdrops on which they interact. The story, a lightweight mystery at best, begins by introducing calm, curious, detailed-obsessed young Ottoline, who, along with sidekick Mr. Monroe (think Gomez Addams’ hairy Cousin Itt)  investigates the disappearance of several pampered pooches, only to discover the dognapper isn’t exactly after canine company. In an oversize trenchcoat, Mr. Monroe makes a bizarre gumshoe, with fellow cast members, canines included, just as wacky. An entertaining alternative for chapter-book readers. Grades 2-4. --Stephanie Zvirin
