Ms. Peters has done it again!,
This review is from: The Hippopotamus Pool (Hardcover)I bow to thee ms. peters! this novel is another one of my faves. The whole gang is outstanding.
Finally we find out that lil Ramses is not perfect and gets himself captured by a very obese villian. This book introduces David, Abdullah's grandson, an abused artist working for a man who sells fake antiquities.
Amelia and Emerson are their usual self, with witty repartee, romance and love for egypt. One of my favorite parts of the book was when Emerson asks Amelia to dance. and if y'all are as devoted as i am to the series, then u know how much he sacrificed to dance!
Kevin O'Connell shows his little jurnalistic face, again. YIPPEE! i just love that red-haired Irishman...
Nefret is showing promise as a member of the Emersons. She and Ramses seem to never get along, but Amelia and I can see how much they love each other, in more than a brother-sister way.
if u havent read any of the books before hippopotamus pool, i suggest u do, or else u dont get that joy of growing up w/ Ramses... or, heck, Amelia and Radcliffe!
I can't wait for "Seeing a Large Cat"... i hear Ramses is 16 and "to die for"
