A thrilling chapter book about a brother, a sister, and a mysterious scroll that hurtles them through time to the Israelites' escape from Egypt
The Secret of the Hidden Scrolls series follows siblings Peter and Mary and their dog, Hank, as they discover ancient scrolls that transport them back to key moments in biblical history.
In The Great Escape, Peter, Mary, and Hank journey to the pyramid-studded desert of ancient Egypt. When the trio become friends with Pharaoh's daughter, they witness first-hand as Moses petitions Pharaoh for the Israelites' freedom. Plagues wreak havoc as the group races to decode the scroll, gets chased by a panther, and battles Pharaoh's cunning advisor, the Great Magician. Young readers will anxiously follow along as Peter and Mary's thrilling adventures bring the biblical story of Exodus to life. Age 6-9.
My thoughts: We enjoyed reading this one together as a family! The kids and I read the first two book aloud, so we were thrilled to get the newest addition to the series. I loved the adventure that Mary and Peter go on in ancient Egypt and how they make friends with the Pharaoh's daughter. This book deals with some tough issues, like the Israelites being slaves to the Egyptian, well. For that reason, it is probably better geared towards the 6-9 age range, but my preschooler still enjoyed the story and pictures.
I received this book from Worthy in exchange for my honest review.
