PILLARS OF TIME by Andreas Oertel
CHILDREN'S
Released: Oct. 1, 2010

In book two of The Archaeolojesters series, Cody, Eric and Rachel are off on another historical journey. Thanks to their previous adventure with a faux-Egyptian tablet, they've been awarded a trip to Egypt. When they leave their home in Sultana, Manitoba, and arrive in Cairo, they are immediately kidnapped and taken to the open-air museum at Mit Rahina, where the pillars are believed to be a doorway to the past. The kidnappers turn out not to be evil; they only want Cody and company to retrieve Dr. Wassler's daughter, Anna, believed to have time-travelled through a wormhole created by the pillars, and the moment is right for the three protagonists to take advantage of the summer solstice and a cosmic anomaly to move through time in search of Anna. Besides enjoying a fast-paced adventure story, young readers will learn about the solstice, time travel, ancient Egypt and ancient Cree culture in this volume that easily stands on its own. A third installment is already in the works. (Adventure. 9-12)Read full book review >
