Summary
Adventures in Ancient Egypt mixes fact and fiction for fast, funny and fascinating romps through the past. Kids will love the book's contemporary comic-book look with its zany illustrations, speech balloons and guidebook. Parents and teachers will love the well-researched story lines and solid factual information. In this book, the Binkerton twins, Josh and Emma, and their little sister, Libby, stumble into the Good Times Travel Agency and take a once-in-a-lifetime trip back to Ancient Egypt!
Published Reviews
Booklist Review: "Gr. 2^-5. In this first book in the Good Times Travel Agency series, which depends heavily on cartoon illustrations, the Binkerton twins, Josh and Emma, and little sister Libby stumble into a peculiar travel agency. The strange owner encourages the children to peruse his dusty, old travel guides, and no sooner does Josh open a book about ancient Egypt than the three children are transported back in time. It's 2500 B.C, and they're knee-deep in the Nile, with no chance of returning home until they've read every word of the book. A variety of adventures ensues, including encounters with crocodiles, tomb robbers, and angry soldiers. Bailey delivers not only a fast-paced story but also a fun way to convey information about Egyptian lifestyles, religion, and schools, and, of course, the pyramids and mummies. The busy cartoon illustrations support both the fiction and the facts. --Shelley Townsend-Hudson"
