Mystery of the Egyptian Scroll
Author: Scott Peters
You, who have dug deep and sifted hard for a story to read, have unearthed an ancient treasure: a mystery from the dusty ages, when a boy could be a hero and fight for the good of all . . .
ZET TRIES TO TRACK DOWN A MISSING SCROLL IN HIS FIRST EXCITING ADVENTURE.
12-year-old Zet and his sister Kat are in charge of the family pottery stall now that their father is off fighting the Hyksos. Who knew putting food on the table could be so hard?
When he hears a thief has stolen an important scroll--and that there's a reward for the thief's capture--he's determined to win it.
The chase leads him into forbidden temples whispering with the voices of ancient gods, into a web that threatens to crush his family forever.
