Brownstone’s Mythical Collection Marcy and the Riddle of the Sphinx


Marcy Brownstone feels an obligation to live up to the heroism of her father, Arthur,. Despite his stories of adventure, and his gentle guidance, she remains scared. The dark terrifies her, so how could she possibly step outside, into the world of possible dangers and evil?

When Arthur travels to Egypt, Marcy suspects her father may be in danger, and her fears vanish. Following her father’s tip to find the magical feathers of a wind weaver tucked into his old brown hat, Marcy sets off. With the guidance of Egyptian gods, she works to rescue Arthur, putting her fears to one side, as she works to solve the riddle of the sphinx.

This splendidly inspiring and informative graphic novel works well on its own, but is an equal sequel to Arthur and the Golden Rope. We recommend ‘Marcy and the Riddle of the Sphinx‘ to readers aged from 9 or 10 years old.
