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.

    Story
    "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!

    Story
    "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.

    Story
    "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.

    Story
    "Upsetting"
    This book wasn???t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

    Not for very young. Upsetting subject matter. Children do not really need to read about a serial child killer.


    Would you ever listen to anything by Zilpha Keatley Snyder again?

    Never


    Did Alyssa Bresnahan do a good job differentiating all the characters? How?

    Good narration
