Three zany adventures featuring Arabel Jones and her pet raven, Mortimer.
In "The Mystery of Mr. Jones’s Disappearing Taxi," someone has been driving Mr. Jones’s taxi, and books have been mysteriously vanishing from the local library. Can Arabel and Mortimer solve the mystery?
"Mortimer’s Cross" sees Arabel’s nasty great-aunt Olwen coming to stay, and subjecting Mortimer to a bath—much to his disgust.
And in "Mortimer’s Portrait on Glass" the Jones family takes a trip to Ireland and visits a glass factory, with unfortunate results.
