Ottoline goes to school

Ottoline and Mr.Munroe

Cover of Ottoline goes to school

Ottoline lives in Apartment 246 in the P.W. Huffledinck Tower But everybody calls it the pepperpot Building because it looked like one.her parents traveled a lot and she had to stay home so she had someone to look after her. Mr.Munroe. He is a bog monster that came from a Norway Bog.Ottoline and Mr.Munroe were on a Walk and they were going to visit the turtles in the turtle pool.And when they got there,they met a girl named Cecily Forbes-Lawrence III and her cute little Patagonian pony Mumbles. One day Cecliy came over for tea and told Ottoline about her school The Alice B. Smith School for the Differently Gifted. Ottoline wrote to her parents and this is what it said

Dear Ma and Pa,

I think it is time for me to go to a proper school. My new friend Cecily Forbes-Lawrence III goes to the Alice B. Smith School for the Differently gifted and is very good at sipping tea. Mr.Munroe and I would like to discover our different gifts so we can help you in your collecting when we grow up

Lots of love,O

But when Ottoline gets there people are saying that the school is haunted. Is it or is it not haunted? I really like this book because He put a lot of animals in it.So if you like unusal books then you will love this book

I haven't read any Ottoline books yet but they sound so good. I really like Chris Riddell, he's one of my favourite illustrators. I'm glad he writes his own books too.
