The Lovereading4Kids comment
An irresistible adventure through a world full of dust, insects, magic potions, missing jewels and stuffed animals and an incredible secret that takes Tom back 100 years into a breathtaking adventure to far flung places of the world and back again. It's Indiana Jones for a new generation. A brilliant find.
The Museum's Secret: The Remarkable Adventures Of Tom Scatterhorn by Henry Chancellor
Welcome to the Scatterhorn Museum! But don't get too excited - it's a cold and dingy place, crammed full of tatty stuffed animals and junk. Nobody much wants to visit any more, and its days are surely numbered. But when Tom is sent to live here he soon finds there is more to this museum than meets the eye.
The animals may be shabby and moth-eaten - but they possess an incredible secret. And when Tom discovers he can go right back to the time of their making, a hundred years earlier, he embarks on a journey full of unimaginable terrors...Join Tom in his breathtaking adventure in and out of time, from an Edwardian ice fair to the wastes of Mongolia, the jungles of India, and beyond...
'a Gripping opening chapter worthy of Indiana Jones... readable and original.' The Sunday Times
A time-travelling Indiana Jones-style mystery...will appeal to those who like a bit of magic with their mystery.' Daily Mail
