Collins Big Cat - Puzzle of the Pyramid: Band 11+/Lime Plus
Lola’s auntie Flo has always been an adventurous sort, which is why it was no surprise when she took up the challenge of a trip to Egypt to investigate a newly found pyramid. It was all in a good cause – raising money for a local charity. Then things got strange when Flo disappeared without a trace. The last Lola heard was when a postcard arrived which didn’t sound like her auntie at all – that’s when Lola knew Flo was in trouble. Join Lola and her mum as they pack their rucksacks and set off on a thrilling trip to Egypt on the trail of auntie Flo. Will they be able to piece together the evidence to find her? This humorous mystery story was written by Ciaran Murtagh.
