Brownstone's Mythical Collection: Marcy and the Riddle of the Sphinx

Publisher: Flying Eye Books

Review

Marcy, the daughter of a once-great adventurer, feels like she doesn’t measure up, adventurer-wise. But when Marcy’s dad disappears on urgent business for a week with no word, Marcy gets worried and flies to Egypt on the back of a bird to find him.

And it’s lucky that she does, because Dad is in quite a bit of bother in the secret tunnels inside the Sphinx. Luckily, on her journey, Marcy has been given the Eye of Ra to help guide her in the darkest shadows, but the god Thoth wants it for his own…

The second book in Joe Todd-Stanton’s Brownstone’s Mythical Collection stands alone well as a highly illustrated graphic novel for younger readers. The pictures are stunning and the text is minimal, meaning that this is a real treat for kids that love adventure, exciting, mythical characters and quick reads.
