Some people think that museums are dusty, boring places full stuff no-one cares about: wrong! In a hidden headquarters below the exhibits there's a gang ready to handle dangerous, spooky or just plain weird problems: the Museum Mystery Squad.

Meet techie-genius Nabster, mile-a-minute Kennedy, and sharp-eyed Laurie (along with Colin the hamster!) in book 1. There's nothing deader than a mammoth. So how can it be moving at night? Can the Squad unravel the puzzle before the museum faces a mammoth sized problem?

In book 2, a strange message is found hidden on the casket of Pharaoh Raneb and the Squad must crack a code nobody's seen since ancient Egyptian times. Can they reveal the mummy's secret before it unravels?

In book 3, the team investigates missing treasure.

Enjoy the riddles, red herrings and big reveals jam-packed into this fun-filled series of mystery stories.There's no brain-twisting, totally improbable puzzle the Squad can't solve. Addictive reading for amateur detectives.
