Ottoline and the Purple Fox - Ottoline (Hardback)Chris Riddell (author)
Ottoline Brown lived in an apartment in the P. W. HUFFLEDINCK Tower; which looked like a pepper pot so everyone called it the Pepperpot Building.
Ottoline - the sometime librarian, archivist and expert amateur detective – is back!
Along with her very best friend Mr. Munroe (who is small and hairy and as everyone knows comes from a bog in Norway) she has foiled a notorious cat burglar, faced a haunted horse and seen the Abominable Troll of Trondheim, Quite Big Foot.
Now they’re mixed up with an enigmatic purple fox, who offers to take them on a night-time urban safari. The fox shows them all the hidden animals of the city and Ottoline makes notes on them in her field notebook.
Mr Munroe is making notes too - on the anonymous poems he finds stuck to lampposts on their journey.
Who is the secretive poet, and how can he and Ottoline help them mend their broken heart?
