Too much evil

There is a lot of evil. Things like a ghost queen and the undead. I was excited my son was into this series until I learned more about this, the third book in the series. Now I feel compelled to look into each book individually. Sad the author had to ruin some of them with so many evil themes.

This has interested my 5 year old son to want to read chapter books. It is awesome to hear him talking about what book is next and what book he has already read in class. He is excited and learning a lot from them

Our review:
Parents say (2 ):
Kids say (6 ):

Mary Pope Osborne has the magic formula for creating suspense and intrigue without being too scary. The page-turning plot is episodic; each chapter moves quickly from pyramids, mirages, and black cats to tomb robbers, mummies, and false passages.

Jack reads from his book and records notes -- a clever device that gives kids just enough background on unfamiliar facts and terms of ancient Egypt, such as sarcophagi and hieroglyphs, to understand the story line. Not a thread is left untied; just when it seems the mystery is complete, Annie gets lost in a false passage. Suspense builds, as the two do-gooders have to crack codes to complete their mission.
