Suspense in Ancient Egypt -- Fun and Eudcational
My 10 year old reluctant reader son loved this book. I thought the narrator was great and I was happy to listen along. My son was disappointed it wasn't part of a series. The added plus was that it was educational and got him excited about Ancient Egypt.
There are many exciting moments -- enough that it was too absorbing to listen to at bedtime.
Excellent narrator for both children and adults to listen to. There are unfamiliar names and places in the book, due to its setting in Ancient Egypt, and I could imagine my son being frustrated with that if he had to read it without benefit of the audio. As it was, the names were handled so naturally it wasn't a barrier.
It was a very uplifting book by the end.

Egypt lovers, read this book!
