Children • 5.25 hrs. • Unabridged • © 1967

An unlikely band of children, enthralled by the mysteries of the pharaohs, withdraws from daily life into an elaborate game of make-believe in their own Egypt. Combine exotica with murder and an enigmatic professor, and one has the makings of a super mystery. The narrator's delivery is clear and compelling. Her control of tone and register is excellent and allows her to move deftly among the diverse characters so that each stands distinct, whole and memorable. As the book was named a Newbery Honor Book some twenty years ago, we are fortunate that it's now revived in audio. It's a gem. B.M.W. ©AudioFile, Portland, Maine [Published: SEPT 95]
