The next book in this exciting new series will cover even more of history's most fascinating head-scratching conondrums, including the curse of the Hope Diamond, King Tut's tomb, black holes, the puzzling disappearance of ancient civilizations, cryptic creatures of myth and legend, long-lost treasure, and so much more.

Chock-full of cool photos, fun facts, and spine-tingling fun, this book is sure to keep curious kids engaged as they try to piece together these puzzles of the past!
