Thu. 4 May 2017, 4:30 pm – 5:00 pm AEST
For our May Middle Grade Book Club we will be reading Jake Atlas and the Tomb of the Emerald Snake by Rob Llyod Jones.
Join us in the Younger Sun for snacks and chats!
The Atlas family is in trouble: Jake hides an addiction to stealing; his twin sister, Pan, has to conceal her genius, for fear of bullies. The siblings can't stop fighting – with each other and with their parents, stuffy professors of Ancient History.
But Jake's and Pan's lives take a dramatic turn the day they discover the truth about their boring mum and dad. When the family go to Cairo on holiday, Jake and Pan's parents mysteriously vanish and it's up to the twins to find them. They must team up with shady tomb robbers, master high-tech gadgets and locate a lost tomb in this story of a family that finds itself deserted in the deserts of Egypt!
