Andy Shane and the Queen of Egypt
Jacobson, Jennifer Richard. 2008. Andy Shane and the Queen of Egypt.
This is my first introduction to Andy Shane. (Other books include Andy Shane and the Pumpkin Trick and Andy Shane and the Very Bossy Dolores Starbuckle.) I enjoyed the cast of characters very much. Andy Shane is a bit on the quiet/shy side. At least compared to Dolores Starbuckle. So when both want to choose Egypt for their project on Africa, a lot of drama ensues. A lot. Can these two kids find a way to work together? Can they use their strengths and weaknesses to compliment one another and get the job done? Read and see. It's funny and true-to-life.
