about

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 kid could be a hero and fight for the good of all . . .

12-year-old Zet and his sister Kat love running their family pottery stall. But it's a struggle to keep afloat, now that their father is away fighting the Hyksos invaders. When the siblings learn about a valuable scroll that's gone missing, Zet and Kat decide to join forces. If they can find it, they'll win a huge reward for their family. Their problems will be over! Little do they know what troubles lie ahead. The chase leads Zet and Kat into the hotspots of ancient Egypt--from stunning temples to the Nile river, through a mysterious land of hieroglyphics, Egyptian gods, mythology, and majesty that the world has never forgotten.

This debut novel in the ancient civilization action-packed Kid Detective Zet series from Amazon best-selling author Scott Peters is a mind-broadening adventure for elementary and middle-grade readers of Rick Riordan, The Hardy Boys, and Conn Iggulden. 

Provides a smart step up for readers of Mary Pope Osborne, as it "lends itself to being read by kids moving beyond chapter books." The short chapters provide easy wins for middle school readers and makes it perfect for school reading lists. This is a middle-grade book for boys, a middle-grade book for girls. Popular in kids book clubs and homeschooling. An action oriented tale that's a great way to introduce middle-school youngsters to the world of ancient Egypt. "A big hit in our library, can't keep it on the shelf. Don't miss this must-read!" - E. Crow, Librarian
