The Archaeolojesters - Andreas Oertel

Publisher:  Lobster Press
Pages:  192
Source:  Received e-book for review from publisher
Genre:  Middle Grade Mystery

What would you do to help your best friend?  Twelve year old Cody learns his best friend Eric and Eric's twin sister Rachel may have to move from their small town of Sultana.  Business has been down in this sleepy little town and Eric and Rachel's mom may lose her job as a waitress at the restaurant.  Eric and Cody decide they need something that will bring people back into their town.  They decide to create an Egyptian place complete with hieroglyphs and bury it in the river so that it can be discovered.  But what happens when it is actually discovered and they bring in archaeologist from Egypt?  Will it still pass the test?  If not what will be the consequences?  This was a fun book to read.  I think it will keep kids interested from the beginning to the end.
