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.
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.

A great in betweener! So fun.
A delightful peek into the "off-duty" adventures of supernatural sleuth R.F. Jackaby and his plucky assistant Abigail. The Map was packed with the humorous and often deadly, fantastical creatures that author William Ritter so effortlessly brings to life. If you are a fan of Jackaby and Abigail this will make a welcome addition to your collection. If you have yet to experience their particular brand of crime solving, I would heartily recommend this YA series.
