The Map: A Jackaby Story

The Map: A Jackaby Story (Jackaby #1.5)
by William Ritter
57 pages
Abigail and Jackaby must tame an enormous (and carnivorous) rabbit, defend a castle, and master a dirigible if they want to find the treasure and get back to New Fiddleham alive.

Abigail hopes that her birthday will slip by unnoticed and uncelebrated, but her employer, detective of the supernatural R. F. Jackaby, has other plans. Using magical party crackers that teleport the pair to unknown destinations in time and space and a cryptic map that may lead to a forgotten treasure, Jackaby intends to give Abigail what he considers to be the best gift of all--adventure.

This e-novella came out as a teaser/bridger for those who are waiting for Beastly Bones to be published. Although I prefer to hang out with Jacakby and Abigail for longer than 100 pages, this was a great "filler" while waiting for Beastly Bones. Miss Rook would prefer that Jackaby forget her birthday, but what he has in mind takes them on a while treasure seeking quest across England and even goblin territories based on the song Whisky in the Jar. If you enjoy time with these characters, this madcap mini adventure won't leave you wanting.
