They get split up when Josh is taken away to help build a pyramid for the kings, and after they are reunited, they are accused of being tomb robbers! The only way home is to finish reading the guidebook. Will they do it in time? Filled with excitement and adventures, and lots of facts about life in ancient Egypt, including politics, government, philosophy, and the daily lives and celebrations of the people, Hot On The Trail In Ancient Egypt is a great book to give curious readers young and old.
