BOOKS FOR KEEPS
A richly entertaining novel, full of information, invention, fun and tension.
“This book grabs you from the first spooky moment when Cy wakes from his dream about ancient Egypt and decides to get back into it again. An ancient Egyptian boy (Aten) comes out of Cy’s dream and becomes involved in Cy’s waking world. The Dream Master controls everyone’s dreams and doesn’t like boys like Cy trying to control their own dreams. Sometimes this book is scary and sometimes it’s really hilarious. … I didn’t want the story to end.
