The Red Pyramid Cover!

Behold, all you reader guys, the cover of the latest book from the mighty Rick Riordan! It's The Red Pyramid, the first in the Kane Chronicles. This book brings the ancient Egyptian immortals into the modern world, just as the Percy Jackson books did for the Greek myths. Doesn't this look cool? The book comes out on 5-24-10. CAN'T WAIT!!

WOW, that is a cool cover. I might just become a boy book reader. Ha! I do read boy books trying to find ones my grandson Kane will read. If I talk about them then he wants to read them.

I'm super excited about another Riordan series!

I will have to order at least five copies of this. I won't get them until August. **SOB** (Spent all my budget!)

Yes, I'm super excited too! Sorry you won't get any until August, Ms. Yingling, but they'll still get checked out. If you want to find good boy books, go to our Links. We've also got a link to all the books we and other boys have reviewed, complete with the dates of the original reviews--although I need to update it since I haven't done so since November!

I love learning about ancient Egypt so this book interested me from the moment my nephew gave it to me. The chapters have fun titles and are alternately told in Carter and Sadie's voices which I enjoyed. The brother-sister banter is an added quality that made the story fun to read. It took me awhile to get through the book and it seemed like the obstacles Carter and Sadie faced would never end.
