Readers will appreciate this fun, smart, exciting step up from Mary Pope Osborne’s Magic Tree House and R.L. Stine’s Goosebumps as it “lends itself to being read by kids moving beyond chapter books.” The short chapters provide easy wins for middle school readers and makes it perfect for school reading lists. Fans of the Hardy Boys, Nancy Drew, and Indiana Jones will be right at home. An action oriented tale that’s a great way to introduce middle-school youngsters to the world of ancient Egypt.
