Today, I’m giving away fellow CBAY author, Leslie Carmichael’s midgrade fantasy, The Amulet of Amon-Ra (CBAY, 2009). I actually read this awhile ago and it makes a quick and pleasant read for the third through seventh grade set.
Summary: When Jennifer receives an ancient scarab with a hidden compartment, she travels through time and space to the era of the great female pharaoh, Hatsheput. She uncovers conspiracies and tomb robbers, but can she find her way home?
Genres: Science Fiction/Fantasy
Things to like about this book: Egyptophiles will like this story. It includes a great deal of history and it could be included in a unit on ancient Egypt.
Audience: Upper elementary, MidGrade
Reviewed from: Paperback provided by publisher.
