Have you met Zet? Now seeking kid detectives ages 8-12.
A family-friendly adventure series from Scott Peters, award-winning author and creator of over 300 museum and science center exhibits worldwide.
12-year-old Zet has a mystery on his hands: the ancient Egyptian Kingdom's royal daughter has vanished into thin air! No one knows where she has gone. People have searched up and down the Nile River, and at the ancient Temple construction site where she was last seen. So now it's Zet's turn to play detective--he's been appointed to investigate, because surely no one will notice a boy poking around for clues. But there's a problem. Zet's best friend, Hui, wants to help, and whenever Hui-the-joker gets involved, things tend to turn messy. The boys set sail down the Nile to a temple construction site. But with a suspicious boat captain on their tail, playing spy won't be easy. At least there's a pyramid to hide in, even as temple pillars are mysteriously falling over and crashing to the ground! And when the going gets rough, the boys have each others' backs. Because best friends, they stick together.
Riddled with fascinating ancient Egypt facts!
Trivia and page-turning action!
