ABOUT THE BOOK (it's free, links below!)

Four friends scramble to unmask the mummy that's haunting their ancient town of Thebes.

When 12-year-old Zet comes face-to-face with a whispering mummy, his eyes practically pop out of his head. Why is a mummy haunting his front door? Zet joins forces with his 11-year-old sister Kat and best friend Hui. They need to unwind this spine-tingling mystery fast, because there’s a zany rumor that they're cursed. If they don't, their world might just come unraveled! Clues send them tiptoeing through the hotspots of ancient Egypt—into hieroglyphics covered tombs and paddling up and down the Nile on a wild mummy chase. They soon suspect this will be their spookiest mystery ever!

- Full of historical facts about ancient Egypt, this story provides an exciting basis for the study and discussion of the ancient world.

- Readers will come away knowing all about mummification, several Egyptian gods and myths, as well as elements of daily life in ancient Egypt.
