Poor poor Tabitha Crum. Not a friend in the world except a pet mouse, and her parents are just absolutely horrible to her. But she does find some refuge in reading mysteries, which is a good thing, because just when her parents suddenly announce they have to leave (and are leaving Tabitha to be a scullery maid at the school), she and five other kids receive a mysterious invitation to a very wealthy Countess’s house. Her parents leap on this opportunity and drag Tabitha along. Turns out the Countess, a very mysterious figure, is looking for someone. Let the mysteries begin! Is the Countess who she says she is? Where are all of the other kids disappearing to? What was that noise? Tabitha is on the case, and we’re rooting for her to solve this terrific mystery.
