Marcy and the Riddle of the Sphinx

Buried amongst the treasures in Professor Brownstone’s vault, lie his most prized possessions – a humble collection of books. Filled with stories from his ancestors, they contain tales of fearless fighters, unlikely heroes and legends from years gone by.

Many years have passed since the tale of Arthur and the Golden Rope and Arthur is now a world-famous adventurer. If only his daughter Marcy shared his enthusiasm for exploration… Determined to bring out Marcy’s adventurous side, Arthur sets off to Egypt to bring back the legendary Book of Thoth. When Arthur doesn’t return, Marcy must follow in his footsteps. Can she overcome her fears and rescue her father from the clutches of the Great Sphinx?

Our Review Panel says...

This highly appealing text is a hybrid between picture book and graphic novel. It follows the story of young Marcy, who finds himself on a mission to save her father after he becomes trapped inside an Ancient Egyptian Sphinx. On her journey Marcy must learn to overcome her fears and challenge evil as she encounters hieroglyphs, Egyptian gods and ancient tombs as she goes about her quest. A gentle introduction to Ancient Egyptian mythology in the form of an exciting quest narrative.
