    2. 12 year old twins Jake and Pandora (Pan), are off on a family holiday with their parents to Egypt. Even before they have boarded the plane, Jake lands himself in a spot of bother, after stealing a tablet, (the electronic type).Whilst hiding from security, and trying to get to his boarding gate on time, he becomes trapped. That is until a mysterious person speaks to him, telling him when to run, and when to hide, until the voice gets him onto his plane without being seen.Once in Egypt, the pair a [...]

    3. Review can also be found on littlebigreads/2017/05/22It was meant to be a fun holiday, but before they even left the airport Jake was getting up to his usual tricks"Beneath the table, my leg began to twitch. I needed to move, needed to do somethingTwenty-five minutes after I promised to stay out of trouble, I'd stuffed a tablet computer up my T-Shirt and was about to steal it from an airport shop."While there was tension due to Jake's antics, his twin sister Pan (short for Pandora), his parents [...]

    4. Indiana Jones meets Mission Impossible is what I was thinking while reading this book and at the end of the book in the About the Author section, the author mentions those two films so that is exactly what he had in mind. High-tech adventure mixed with an ancient Egyptian mystery. You cant go wrong.

    5. Very good, well written, pacey, historical. Very good book for boys. I still prefer Wild Boy but only because he's more endearing than Jake. Feels like a second book will flesh out the characters better. Still brilliant though.

    6. An action-packed "National Treasure" style story; a loveable rogue and his genius sister set out on an Egyptian adventure to save their parents, defeating all odds. A great intro or accompaniment to an Egyptian topic for LKS2, or to entice reluctant boy readers.

    7. Jake and his twin Pan (Pandora) don't like each other much. So spending a boring week or so with their even more boring History Professor parents in Cairo doesn't seem much like a holiday to them. Jake has a knack for getting into trouble but vows that he'll be good.But it's not long before he's stolen an i-pad and is chased by airport security. A strange scarred man comes to his aid and then seems to be following them. After another fight with his sister, their parents leave them in their room, [...]

    8. I was sent a free copy of this book by the publisher Walker Books.Twelve and a half year old Jake is a thief and all round trouble maker. When he and his family set off on a holiday to Egypt, Jake causes trouble again, upsetting both his parents and his sister Pan. But when their parents go missing, Jake and Pan must team up to find them, a search which will lead them on an adventure to ancient tombs and strange discoveries.I really love this book, even the cover had me wanting to read it! 'Jake [...]

    9. This is great fun and non-stop action. In the author's note he said he wanted to writer a 'Indiana Jones' meets 'Mission Impossible' but with kids and their parents. He's done a great job of that. Personally, I enjoyed Wild Boy more, which is strange considering I was obsessed with Ancient Egypt as a kid, but had I read this as a kid, it would have been THE BOMB!

    10. Jake Atlas is a magnet for trouble - actually he goes looking for it more often than not! When his family goes on a trip to Cairo for his Egyptologist parents to give an important lecture, trouble finds Jake all by itself. His parents have disappeared. So he and his twin sister Pandora must find them - not the easiest task in a country you've never been before! So why not enlist the help of some (slightly dodgy) individuals who might not be quite what they seem but who have a lot of useful infor [...]

    11. A brilliant story. The adventure of a brother and sister in a world hidden by their parents, they were clearly born to live for this adventure. There are many parts in the story which put you on the edge of your seat. I am defiantly hoping for another book to come.

    12. An explosive combination of Indiana Jones style treasure hunting and Mission Impossibles grade gadgets, throw in two 12 (and half) twins and you have an adventure you're not likely to forget.Jake and his sister Pan take a trip to Egypt with their parents when they are unexpectedly kidnapped and it's up to the twins to rescue them. A great cast of characters from the kids to the adults, including a James Bond-esque villain. The kids don't feel immature in the way they've been written and they've [...]

    13. Jake and his twin sister, Pandora, accompany their archaeologist parents when they go to Egypt to deliver some lectures but when their parents disappear the twins are propelled into an adventure featuring pyramids, mummies, treasure and deadly assassins. Back in the everyday world, Jake was continually in trouble for his impulsive behaviour while Pan tended to hide her formidable intelligence but in this new situation both of them will need to use their skills if they are to survive; let alone r [...]

    14. I, thoroughly, enjoyed this book as it possessed a great balance of adventure and suspense. I particularly enjoyed the way that Egyptian mythology was weaved throughout the adventure.I highly recommend it.
