    The Professor's Daughter by Joann Sfar (nessreader)
    nessreader: Both of these are picture books for genteel grownups who eat cucumber sandwiches with a twinkle in their eye. Sfar's sepia romance between a mummy and a debutante, or Ottoline's pen + ink detail about a fantasy finishing school - both are really jokes about terribly proper behaviour.… (more)

When Ottoline meets and befriends the wealthy Cecily Forbes-Lawrence III, she decides that she should go away to boarding school just like Cecily does, so she and her cohort Mr. Munroe set off for the Alice B. Smith School for the Differently Gifted. Is it possible the school is actually haunted?

This is a quirky tale with lots of quirky illustrations and kids who are into the quirky will delight in it. Me? It's not really my thing. ( )

This is the best book I've ever read. ( )

Second in the series featuring our fun heroine, who goes to a rather different school. There are some weird goings on and Ottoline investigates with Mr Monroe, her guardian (a Norwegian swamp man, whom everyone else thinks is a dog). A great story for 7 year olds, together with fantastic retro-feel illustrations, b/w pen drawings, this time hightlighted with blue (vol 1 was red). More please! ( )
