Product Description

Matt and Bibi's archaeologist parents are taking them to Egypt to find a mummy hidden within the depths of a pyramid...but when the kids are trapped inside, they'll have to figure out how to find their way out! Thankfully, the tomb builders left instructions: "There are many faces inside this pyramid that can guide you."

Kids will love discovering the path out of the pyramid alongside Matt and Bibi as they look at the number of faces on a number of geometric solids. Though their archaeologist-parents won't be pleased they've moved artifacts out of context, they will be pleased to see their children again safe and sound!

Publisher's Description

Matt, Bibi, and their dog Riley crawled through the tiny opening first. FWUMP! A secret door suddenly closed behind them . . .

The Zills family is summoned to Egypt to help find the hidden burial chamber of an ancient pharaoh. But when Matt and Bibi get trapped in the pharaoh's pyramid, they stumble upon an even bigger mystery. With only each other, their dog Riley, and the geometric hieroglyphics on the walls to help them, the twins must use their math skills to locate the burial chamber—and the way out. Luckily, Matt and Bibi know their stuff when it comes to geometric solids, and so will the readers of this adventure in math!
