What would you do if you suddenly found yourself transported back in time to 3000 years ago and at the bottom of a booby-trapped ancient-Egyptian tomb? This book is your chance to find out.
Follow the story through its pages by making strategic choices—you can turn the Eye of Horus wheel for extra clues when you need more information. As you try to crack the code and escape the deadly tomb, you’ll learn some fascinating facts, from information about flash floods in the desert to the tools used by tomb-builders to construct these ancient architectural wonders. Only the smartest and most determined reader will make it out unscathed!
Building on the old concept of the choose-your-own-adventure genre and the new concept of escape rooms, this interactive escape book challenges readers to decipher codes and clues to support problem-solving with informed decisions. Rather than just a puzzle book, readers will benefit from fascinating reference information about ancient Egyptian culture, mythology, architecture, and more. The book is beautifully illustrated with collaged scenes that include many images of actual archeological artifacts, immersing readers in the history of the ancient world and the puzzle.
Escape the Mummy’s Tomb: Crack The Codes, Solve The Puzzles, And Make Your Escape! works on many levels and is sure to keep readers entertained and learning time and time again.
