Book Synopsis

He's a daring young detective. But not when a mummy's hunting him down! Can he return it to its sarcophagus, before it scares off every customer at his family pottery stall?

From award-winning author Scott Peters, creator of over 300 museum and science center exhibits worldwide, comes the adventure of a lifetime.

Zet is a spunky 12-year-old who lives in ancient Egypt and loves solving mysteries. But how does a detective stop a mummy that's haunting his doorstep? Soon, a rumor is zipping around town that Zet and his 11-year-old sister, Kat, are cursed! When customers start avoiding their family pottery stall, the siblings set out to unravel this mummy-mystery, fast. If they don't, their family business will be ruined. The hunt for answers sends the spooked young duo paddling up the Nile on a wild mummy chase. A run in with the Royal Mummy Maker reveals the gruesome secrets of mummification. But will it be enough to stop the monster from spooking away their customers?

Mystery of the Egyptian Mummy is the fourth book in the irresistible Kid Detective Zet middle grade mystery series. If you like brave kids, family-friendly humor, and fun crime solving, then you'll love Scott Peters' fast-paced mystery.
