Mandie Shaw loves to visit her new friend, Faith, at Miss Abigail's big house. There they can play with each other and admire all the beautiful things. One thing the girls can't touch is the china cabinet in the front hall. It's full of precious china that only Miss Abigail is allowed to handle.
But when a beloved teapot turns up missing, does it mean a thief has broken into Miss Abigail's house? Will Miss Abigail have to tell the people of Charley Gap that they should all lock their doors? Mandie's determined to find the answer -- and the missing teapot -- in time for Miss Abigail's big Christmas party.
