Brain Game Treasure Hunts Pyramid Puzzles by Dr. Gareth Moore –OPTIONAL

Moore, Gareth Brain Game Treasure Hunts Pyramid Puzzles 32 pgs. Hungry Tomato (Lerner), 2017.  $7.99.  Content: G.
This book is told in story format, where the reader enters a pyramid and travels through. It features a variety of mind puzzles some of which include hieroglyphics, though most are just mind puzzles with an Egyptian theme. Filled with bright illustrations and tips for how to accomplish the task using props or paper and pencil.
I think this is a fun book for readers who like puzzles and mind teasers. It would be a part of your game and hobby section rather than your ancient Egyptian history section, because it does not contain any factual information. I think students will like that it is presented in a story format, making the mind teasers feel like they are part of an adventure.
