Description

The third book in The Trapdoor Mysteries, a series about Tally, a code-breaking, animal-loving servant girl and her best friend, a squirrel named Squill, who solve mysteries with the help of a secret library...


Orphan Tally is the servant girl at Mollett Manor - and she's also the Secret Keeper of the magical library hidden beneath a trapdoor, underneath the manor's grounds. Along with Squill the squirrel, she uses the enchanted books to solve crimes. So when a mysterious ghostly creature visits the Manor in the middle of the night, leaving barely a trace, it's up to Tally and Squill to figure out what it is and why it's there...with a little help from the library, of course!
