Laugh and smile as you read about the antics of Arabel and Mortimer the raven who live in Rumbury Town, a suburb of London. Three short stories combined into one book.

1. The Mystery of Mr. Jones' Disappearing Taxi
Since between Guy Fawkes (November 5th) and Christmas there have only been two days without rain. Everyone is grumpy except Mr. Jones who has had more business than usual with his taxi. For some strange reason though, his taxi seems to be using more gas. Why?

Mortimer who likes to repeat the word 'nevermore' also likes to eat books but Arabel assures the librarian that Mortimer is not guilty of eating the 1,000 missing books even though he does like to have fun in the library!

Rumbury Tower Heights is a 20 story building that is unused apart from bats. As this adventure continues we read of a kidnapping, floods and the discovery of the book thief.

2. Mortimer's Cross
Poor Mrs. Jones has the flu. The only relative able to come help her is the dreaded Great Aunt Olwen! Being a clean freak, Aunt Olwen is horrified when she sees Mortimer and is determined to give him a bath! Oh my! She then ends up shipping the wrong box somewhere which actually contains a sulking Mortimer. Mortimer proceeds to get up to quite devastating mischief whilst catching some criminals unawares.

3. Mortimer's Portrait on Glass
The Jones family is in Ireland having hired a horse drawn trailer (gypsy caravan) to go visit Great Aunt Rosie. The weather is cold and they end up rescuing a man from a bog who in turn takes them to his glass factory on the coast where there is a rather large iceberg coming into port!

Love the descriptions in this book. A couple examples are: "snowing like a busted pillow" and "frozen stiff as a haddock"!

If you are looking for a serious read, then this is not the book for you! At times it can be a little silly but we need to remember that it was written for children. Our kids absolutely loved it and laughed and laughed. The illustrations in our hardback edition are by Quentin Blake who just brings the characters to life. (He is the illustrator for most of the Roald Dahl books also.) SO great, light entertainment.

What a wonderful book. Smart, gentle, extremely funny and totally inoffensive, this is the sort of book you can encourage just about any kid to read. It's formatted in chapters, but it really functions as a series of short stories, and its wonderful language makes it easily accessible to kids from preschool to middle-grades, and its sophisticated sense of humor makes it appealing even up into adulthood. A great book for anyone.

Mortimer and Arabella are delightful - this book contains 3 of their adventures.
