Nooks and Crannies

Sweet, shy Tabitha Crum, the neglected only child of two parents straight out of a Roald Dahl book, doesn't have a friend in the world -- except for her pet mouse, Pemberley, whom she loves dearly. But on the day she receives one of six invitations to the country estate of wealthy Countess Camilla DeMoss, her life changes forever.

Upon the children's arrival at the sprawling, possibly haunted mansion, it turns out the countess has a very big secret -- one that will change their lives forever.

Then the children beginning disappearing, one by one. So Tabitha takes a cue from her favorite detective novels and, with Pemberley by her side, attempts to solve the case and rescue the other children...who just might be her first real friends.

"While the story certainly gets its inspiration from many places — Roald Dahl, Trenton Lee Stewart, and Scooby Doo — the way in which it is told is original, engaging, and funny. Tabitha is a smart, plucky heroine whom readers will get behind: they'll cry with her when she feels unloved, they'll be scared with her in the dark, and they'll cheer when she wins in the end. The writing is beautiful, expertly capturing all the suspense, hope, and love in the story." -- Laura Lutz, School Library Journal
