Two thieves, caught stealing from an Egyptian market, are brought before the Cat Pharaoh, who agrees to pardon them if they bring back a treasure that was stolen from her, without taking anything else and without getting the precious Jewel Fish wet.
Mystery Lovers Review:
What kid from 8 to 80 could resist this gorgeous volume with stunning illustrations, a series of puzzles, a decoder wheel, a map and two somewhat inept thieves. On top of that you've got a setting in ancient Egypt and loads of gods and goddesses. Although this is a picture book the minimum age is probably 6 as there is plenty of text and quite a complicated story.
