My Review

Max Mead is a British boy celebrating his 13th birthday with his family in Egypt. He has found his missing grandfather and is enjoying spending time with him there. He sees his future there learning more about the magical cabinet. But, his family wants to go back to England so his sister can try for a gold medal in fencing. Through the magical cabinet and other Egyptian artifacts, Max is trying to learn the secrets that Harold left behind in his notebook. Max finds the ability to travel in time comes through the ring of King Tutankhamen. Max is the novice collector of missing Egyptian treasures and longs to be a competent.

There are mysteries to solve and the evil Lieutenant to stop. With the help of Grandad, Youssef, and Kiki, Max finds the courage to aim for the “gold”. Max has struggles to overcome, because of his fear and the successful big sister that always seems to get the most attention from his parents. This book is beautifully written and is full of adventure. The book leaves you waiting for the next installment of adventures with Max.
