Publisher's Summary

When Melanie Ross first meets April Hall, she's not sure what to think. What other sixth grade girl wears her blonde hair piled in a twist and flaunts false eyelashes? But when the two girls discover the storage shed outside the A-Z Antiques and Curio Shop, they discover they both love anything to do with ancient Egypt. Soon the friends create the Egypt Game. Dressed up in costumes, they secretly hold ceremonies and dance in the ghostly interior of the shed. As the number of Egyptians begins to grow, so does their fun. Then one day, strange things begin to happen. Soon the players find themselves deep in a dangerous mystery that threatens to end the Egypt Game for good.

Better than I remembered

I read this book when I was young. I decided to listen to help me pass time on an airplane, something not very important or intellectually stimulating. It was even better, because as a young girl, I didn't pick up on so many parts of the story. It brought back nostalgia as well, so the overall enjoyment was so much more. It's a great book, both from a young perspective, and an adult one.

Imagination

I just listened to this book, so I could review it for my 5th grade students. The story is based on the power of imagination. I never expected it to be layered with so many themes and twists! I can't wait to read this aloud to my class!

Entertaining story, very well performed

I’ve read and enjoyed a couple of this author’s other books, so I knew that she was a good writer/storyteller. She does a great job writing about children - particularly their inner thoughts and emotions - in a way that is realistic and not patronizing. The narration was also excellent - the narrator made each character’s voice unique with subtle shifts in accent and tone.

Delightful Story

What a nice story!! The characters are well drawn so you have a feel for each of the children as the story unfolds. I really enjoyed Alyssa Bresnahan’s narration style.

Don’t know how I missed this book growing up in the 60’s. I think this would be a great introduction to audiobooks for children but the story isn’t just for kids.

6th grade SDC

What made the experience of listening to The Egypt Game the most enjoyable?

I am a special education teacher and one of my goals is to keep my kids on track with the general education kids. This audio book reading of the book was a wonderful tool that kept my kids at or ahead of the general education classes, lifting their self esteem and confidence, as well as exposing them to grade level language. The story itself was perfect for them. They really enjoyed all the drama and twists in the story.

What does Alyssa Bresnahan bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

My kids never wanted to hear me read! Alyssa had such a wonderful personality in the story with such perfect intonation, pitch and tone, that they preferred hearing the audible over read aloud.
