@EgmontUSA #Review & #Giveaway #Week The Mummy's Curse (Code Busters Club #4) by @pennyink

Egyptian secrets take center stage in this interactive mystery where boys and girls can solve codes and puzzles right along with the multicultural cast of characters.

Cody, Quinn, Luke, and M.E. love playing around with codes. In fact, they love codes so much they have their own club, with a secret hideout and passwords that change every day.

After learning about steganography, the study of concealed writing, the Code Busters discover that artists have been hiding secret messages in their artwork for centuries. 

A clue hunt on a class trip to the Rosicrucian Egyptian Museum leads the Code Busters to an artifact that doesn't seem to quite fit with the rest of the collection. Could it be a forgery? The Code Busters code-cracking skills and new knowledge of hieroglyphic messages will help them get to the bottom of this mystery, but they better think fast before the criminal tries to frame them!

Winner of the 2012 Agatha Award for Case #2: The Haunted Lighthouse
Nominated for the 2011 Agatha Award for Case #1: The Secret of the Skeleton Key

Ok I think I really need to enter this giveaway!  Mom your killing me!  

Ok so this one were on the trail of the Mummy's Curse.  This one by far is the best of all four books.  I do think that the code inserts should have been plastic so that they would be able to be removed.  The publisher could have put a pocket in the back so you wouldn't loose it.  Or just add an extra one.  Which would be better so that if we loose the insert we could just make a copy of it.  (which is what we did)  

I really love these stories and I think kids of all ages will love them as much as I have.  I would love to get a set of these to donate to my school. 

 Go Into This One Knowing 
Really you won't be able to stop!
