Hopscotch: Golden Scarab by Ian Trevaskis

Walker Books; 2010.
(Age 10-13) This is the second book in the Hopscotch series where the adventurous Hannah and Jake are sucked into a game and are taken to an ancient civilization. In the first book they are transported back to Ancient Greece. In this edition they travel back to Ancient Egypt. Reminiscent of a young Indiana Jones this is a great series that has some historical knowledge of the times of the Pharaoh's and tomb raiders.  We learn early on that they have lost the device that takes them home which adds further complexity to the story. A great read for year 5-7 who are looking for a new quest to follow.
