The Egypt Game

by Zilpha Keatley Snyder

Grade: All right

I think I would have liked it if I were younger. Probably quite a lot. But it's not one of those children's books that is so wonderfully awesome that you love it when you're 21. At least, you don't if you're me.

Also, I probably shouldn't get annoyed about this--maybe it shows that I'm evil or something. But it really goes out of it's way to be PC. There is very carefully one of each of the major races for the three girls, and then one of each for the three boys too. (Caucasian, Asian, African.) Other races is GOOD. There should be MORE other races and all that. BUT... it shouldn't be so obvious. It should just happen. Anyway, enough on that.
