Lost Journal-Mysteries of the Nile by Philip Steele

You have in your hands the long-lost journal of 1920's newspaper reporter, Herbert Fothergill. Written in the heyday of ancient Egypt mania, his journal details an expedition to solve the mystery of the mummy's curse. Fast-forward to the modern day - Herbert's journal is now in the hands of the Unsolved Mysteries Department and they need you to uncover the truth behind this ancient mystery! Beside each page of the lost journal, a commentary from the Unsolved Mysteries Department helps you investigate the mystery. With a skilful fusion of information, activity and storytelling, this title remains firmly rooted in real-world facts about ancient Egypt.
