All is not well in Brightsbane. An evil wizard has stolen a book of spells that could destroy the entire town. When an Elder asks the orphans of St. Crippleback’s to track down the wizard, young Mabel Gray sets out to find the three keys that unlock the book before the wizard can get his hands on them. Armed with her wit and only a small bit of magic, she embarks on an adventure that pits her against talking scarecrows, high-ranking monsters, babbling witches, ill-tempered daemons, and more!
