If you like art, history, and challenges Mummy Mazes, A Monumental Book is perfect for you. Each of its 28 12 X 17.5 inch poster size puzzles includes a back story featuring Professor Archie Ologist on an expedition as well as interesting facts about ancient Egypt. Beware before you start. The paths shown are tricky with multiple false beginnings and endings. Choose carefully as only one way is correct.

I enjoyed learning the explanation for the crying giants. I delighted in the story of the cat who saved the world. I was surprised that the last of the Seven Wonders of the World, Khufu’s pyramid, built 4,670 years ago, still stands. Puzzles are meant to be done in order. Will you take the wrong turn as you visit mummies, monuments, ancient gods, pharoah’s mask, and more? Use the hieroglyphs following each to help you decipher the mummy’s message.

And Mummy Mazes, A Monumental Book has another purpose. It is also a coloring book. Perforated tears allow you to remove each poster. Printed on quality drawing paper, it is suitable for crayons, pencils, markers, almost anything–your choice.

No wonder Elizabeth Carpenter’s book got solid thumbs up from Dr. Toy, the National Parenting Center, Independent Publishers, and Creative Child Magazine. Workman Publishing, New York, will be releasing it December 1, 2010 in time for holiday giving. For $10.95, where can you find a toy that amuses and educates simultaneously?
