There are not that many books that I can read aloud to the boys and we all equally enjoy but this was one.
Perfect balance of action and adventure for Jack without being too scary for Sam.
One thing I liked is that the book never strays into realms of bad language or ‘adult themes’, which with Jack reading books which are often aimed at kids quite a bit older than him is a constant concern.
No it is not quality literature but it is a thumping good yarn and that is good enough for me.
Oh and it had Egyptian gods what more do you need. In fact it was very well researched and we all learned a lot about Ancient Egypt from it.
