"The deserted storage yard and shed behind the A-Z Antique and Curio Shop becomes the Land of Egypt for April and Melanie, who spend every available moment playing the Egypt game. . . . Eventually other children are drawn into the game which culminates in the capture of a murderer. . . . The book has originality, and verve in plot, style, and characterization."--"School Library Journal" starred review.
