The Great Escape by M.J. Thomas ~ Review


My Review:

Peter and Mary are staying with their Uncle Solomon for the Summer, and already they have gone on some pretty amazing adventures. The continue their mission to unlock the secret of the scrolls, this time travelling to Ancient Egypt to witness the Exodus.

They befriend and Egyptian princess, Shephara, who shows them the life of an Egyptian royal. Meanwhile, something big is happening, Israelites Aaron and Moses come before Pharaoh showing great wonders and asking for the freedom of their people. Mary and Peter have 14 days to complete their mission or be stuck in Ancient Egypt forever.

The third adventure of Mary, Peter, and beloved dog Hank, as they go on missions to recover the messages of the hidden scrolls. Peter and Mary work together with the help of archangel Michael, and faithful Hank.

A fast paced read with great messages of faith. The Egyptians worshipped many gods, and treated the Israelites terribly, Peter and Mary stand for what is right as they search for clues. Great moments of action and good natured humor as well.

Overall this is a fantastic book series for chapter book readers, fast paced adventure with illustrations every few pages, with well spaced and sized print. It is very hard to find quality chapter books for young eager reader, let alone ones with a great biblically based storyline and good themes of right and wrong, with GOd and his word at the center, but this book series definitely helps to fill that gap. I serve at my church with the church library, and this series has already been very popular in the short time that it has been available, so I am pleased that more books are being released in this great series. Perfect for young readers!
