A Lottie Lipton Adventure - The Egyptian Enchantment by Dan Metcalf
Child's Review by Lilianna aged 8This book is about a 9 year old girl call Lottie Lipton. She is very inquisitive and lives with her uncle Bert. She doesn’t go to school, but her uncle gives her harder homework than school would. The homework is always puzzles and mysteries. Lottie loves solving puzzles and comes across some real life puzzles when her uncle orders some Egyptian artifacts.
The book has real Egyptian hieroglyphics and facts, and has some puzzles that the reader has to work out. The answers are in the book, so if you get really stuck you can cheat and look them up (but I enjoyed working them out!).
I enjoyed this book because they tell you the facts in an imaginative way, like the spells on the shabtis. I really enjoyed the whole story, but my favourite part was doing the puzzles. Some were hard and some were easy. I liked the maze the most.
I have enjoyed lots of other books but this was my favourite so far so give it a go!
