Travel back through time and discover Ancient Egypt in this thrilling, interactive adventure. Someone is plotting to murder the Pharaoh and it’s up to you to stop them.

From the glittering riches of the royal tombs to the bustling markets of ancient Thebes, your journey will require you to decipher hieroglyphs, learn about gods and goddesses, hunt for clues and unmask the culprit before it’s too late.

Can you solve the ancient Egyptian mystery?


This is the sequel to A Boy Called Christmas, which was a smash hit last year. It tells the story of Father Christmas’s quest to find Amelia, the first child to wake up on the first ever Christmas morning, and the only person who can bring back the magic of Christmas.


Each spread focuses on a different, traditional story, such as Little Red Riding Hood, The Three Little Pigs, Goldilocks and the Three Bears.

The text sets children off on a lift-the-flap trail to discover all the key elements of each story – from Grandma, to the Big Bad Wolf, and even Baby’s Bear’s empty porridge bowl.

Fun introduction to the original stories – whether children are familiar with them or not, they will enjoy discovering them in this engaging and interactive way.
