Then Tally and her squirrel friend, Squill, find a secret library hidden under the manor – a magical library where the books come to life! When Mollett Manor is burgled, can Tally use the knowledge she finds in the books to catch the criminals? Can they even help her solve the mystery of her missing mother?
