The Mystery of the Golden Pyramid – A Lift the Flap Adventure by Adela Norean & Aaron Cushley

The Mystery of the Golden Pyramid cleverly mixes an exciting fiction story with fascinating non-fiction facts!

When Sophie moves to her new house, she meets an unusual talking dog named Ari. He gives her the first piece of a puzzle only she can solve. It’s an amulet belonging to an Egyptian king. Sophie’s quest is to find three more amulets that will lead her to King Nebra.

The hunt for the amulets leads her across town to the harbour, out on a boat and, finally, to the desert where she finds an Egyptian temple. Is she fearless enough to face what is waiting for her in the dark?

Children will love this book and the wonderful adventure inside. A glossy cover, intricate flaps and action-packed illustrations make it feel very special. The Mystery of the Golden Pyramid would be a fun book to include in a Year 3 Ancient Egyptians cross-curricular topic. Children could write their own adventures following a similar format with brilliant flaps hiding secrets and even more information.

Thank you to Little Tiger for this brilliant book!
