This most recent instalment features plenty of illustrations, a
steampunk aesthetic and great mystery. These books were designed
originally for slightly older children to read themselves but my
daughter and I devoured it over three nights. -- Fran Yeoman *

Chris Riddell's illustrations are as dazzling as ever; it's worth lingering over every page to revel in the fluency of his line and to look out for the myriad little details. Ottoline is a delight for readers of all ages. * LoveReading 4 Kids *
