It wasn’t long before a mysterious break-in would lead them on another fabulous adventure. A jarring sound, “the sound of a window smashing and glass shattering on the floor” most certainly got their attention. There were a few small clues, but what would anyone want in the Museum? Hmmmm! Someone had been in the main exhibit hall and was messing around with the Rosetta Stone! Uncle Bert was all upset because this very special stone had “the same message in three different languages engraved on it: Egyptian hieroglyphs, Demonic, and ancient Greek.”
Lottie, ever the young sleuth, noticed something most unusual. “There’s a secret message written on here!” The thief found the hidden message, one that just could let him know where “The Trident of Neptune” was. It was supposedly a “mythical object,” one belonging to a Roman god. Trevelyan Taylor, the Head Curator of the museum, had no love for either Lottie or Uncle Bert. Tricky Trevelyan offered up a bet: “You get the trident for the museum by tomorrow and I’ll double your pay. If you don’t, you’re fired!” Would Lottie be able to a super sleuth like Detective Blade and find the trident or would it be the end of Uncle Bert?!!
Lottie Lipton is an “investigator extraordinaire” young puzzlers and mystery buffs will love! Many books for ‘tweens and teens have puzzles that are integrated into the plot lines that help solve mysteries. These have been beyond the puzzling talents of younger readers ... that is until Lottie came along. There are several puzzles (riddles and Morse Code) that will get youngsters to put on their thinking caps. Not only will they be able to become investigators extraordinaire themselves, but will learn some interesting facts about British history while doing their investigations. In the back is a glossary, extra puzzles, and a few interesting historical facts.
