The Red Pyramid

By: Rick Riordan

Since their mother passed away, Carter has traveled the world with his archaeologist father, while his only sister Sadie lived with their grandparents in London.  In one of their rare visits together, their father takes Sadie and Carter to the British Museum.  The two quickly realize their parents had many magic secrets!  Their father attempts to summon an ancient Egyptian god, but things don't go smoothly.  Suddenly, Sadie and Carter must learn to use their own magical powers to stay alive, save the world, and try to save their father.

Mrs. Senechal says:
If you liked Riordan's Percy Jackson series, you will love this book, too!  The story is filled with non-stop action and suspense.  It is really fun to read about modern kids dealing with historic locations and mythological creatures.  Riordan's description help you picture the adventures, and the characters are very realistic.  Of course, this is only the first book in the series, so you'll have to keep reading to find out what happens!
