A delightful story about Daniel, 11 years old and living in Jerusalem, who aspires to be a detective. When assigned to do a school project on the Dead Sea Scrolls, Daniel discovers there are even bigger mysteries to be solved. His investigation takes him to the Shrine of the Book at The Israel Museum in Jerusalem, where he gets his first clues, then on to Qumran in the Judean Desert, where an archaeologist guides him through the place where the scrolls were found. Yossi Abolafia's lighthearted illustrations that accompany the photographs bring this story to life, as we get to know Daniel, his family, and the people he meets along the way. Young readers who want to get a feel for life in Israel today while learning about the country's most exciting and important archaeological find will enjoy following Daniel's progress on his big case.Allon, Hagit is the author of 'Mystery of the Dead Sea Scrolls', published 2004 under ISBN 9780827608009 and ISBN 0827608004.
