The Egypt Game de Zilpha Keatley Snyder (1967)

    L'enigma de l'estàtua de E. L. Konigsburg (allisongryski)
    allisongryski: These books share an imaginative, adventurous quality, with compelling young characters. The plots/settings are very different, but they have some thematic similarities.

    Theodosia and the Serpents of Chaos de R. L. LaFevers (jfoster_sf)
    jfoster_sf: Another great book for Egypt fanatics! This book is about Theo, the daughter of two museum curators who specialize in Egyptian artifacts. Most nights Theo hangs out at the museum with her dad while her mom travels abroad to dig for more treasures. The story starts off with Theo and her dad opening a package from her mom, and Theo is anxious to see what's inside-not just out of curiosity, but because half the items her mom ships to the museum are riddled with ancient curses, and Theo is the only one who can sense them. It's up to her to protect her parents and the other members of the museum, especially when a mysterious man starts lurking about with his eyes on a rare item.… (més)

A kid's chapter book that harkens back to a time when kids used their imaginations to play games, rather than a program and game player. An 11-year old girl is sent to live with her grandma and she and a neighbor (and the neighbor's little brother) stage an elaborate game with costumes pretending they are in ancient Egypt. A young kid is found murdered and suspicion falls on the oddball store owner where they've been playing. Not really for adults. ( )

As a child like the characters in this book I was fascinated by Egypt, reading everything I could, making up my own hieroglyph name. There is the death of a child that happens off page of someone we don't know. I saw pretty much where the story was going. However it made me nostalgic for my childhood Egypt phase. ( )

In The Egypt Game, six children - five sixth-graders and one younger brother - discover a secret place behind an antiques/junk store and make it their own. But their northern California neighborhood is menaced by a murderer who targets children.

April is white and has been sent to live with her grandmother; Melanie and Marshall are Black; Elizabeth is Asian; and Toby and Ken are white.

"Many things are possible." (the Professor to April, 21)

"None of my friends know how to play imagining games the way you do...I like imagining games better than anything." (Melanie to April, 32)

"Dad says being a baby offended Marshall's dignity."
"Heck, I guess everybody has something they're not very grown-up about." (Melanie and April, 58)

It seemed that sixth grade boys just normally kept a lot of things around that were perfect for the altar of an evil god. (123)

...wasn't that like a boy. They got things into a mess and then expected a girl to get them out of it. (Melanie and April, 170)

...and when they were through, they all stood and looked at the temple that they had made themselves, out of ordinary stuff and their own imaginations, and felt - well, maybe a little like Dr. Frankenstein had when he created the monster. (174-175)

Being scared to do something had always made April more determined to do it than ever. (180)

Imagination is a great thing in long dull hours, but it's a real curse in a dark alley, and April's imagination had always been out of the ordinary. (181)

It had been a terrific game, full of excitement and mystery and way-out imagining, but it had been a great deal more than that. (197)

[April]...felt around inside herself for reactions. She found some, all right, both good and bad; but not nearly as much either way as she would have expected. (202)

"It's just awful when you go back to something that was so great the way you remembered it and it's no good any more. It even ruins remembering." (214) ( )

I have read this book many times, though I don't actually remember when any of them were. I remember loving it. I'm pretty sure it influenced my Halloween costumes in the past. Beyond that, though, I don't remember much about it.
