I think that a tribe could have defeated a army and have stolen some gold , jewles and all the other exspensive stuff.And also there might have been one country arguing whith another country. :-)

I think its about musical instruments being played from around the world. I don't know what the red squares are or the red star but there's 28 squares all on different countries and the star is in the sea.

I think it is a good intro, because it has a question and two other sentences. BUT it could do with a bit more writing. :-x

I liked the introduction because it was expressed in an exciting way. It gave me clues about the book. It told me the book is about mysteries around the world. The question in the introduction made me think about what the mysteries might be. Having a picture of the world and where the mysteries might be made me feel excited.

Quoting Morgan B:
Some mysteries are real and some are made up. I think that the one's which are old mysteries are called legends.

Mysteries are also called legends in a way because they are old stories about strange things that have happened and are well known. Mysteries are also made up to make stories exciting but they can be real and caused by crimes.This book will tell you about mysteries around the world and assist you in solving them.Why do you think these mysteries pop up? :-*

because I want to find out what the mysteries are!I thought the map was great because it made me wonder what strange things happened in the places marked with a red square.But I am wondering most of all what happened in the sea where the red star is! I really need this book to find out more and answer my questions! :-*

I think it maybe about looking for gold and diamonds. The marks are not in Russia China and India perhaps because they were not easy to get to in a boat with sails.

Quoting Harry m:
The introduction could be improved by including bits of what some of the mysteries were about.eg:The red dots could be where the mysteries took place or not ! Or the red dots could be where people are raising money and then the money disappearing. The star might be where they started from.

I liked the intro but it could be longer. eg All the red dots could be places where people have disappeared when they were exploring the country.
