Recensioner i media
"Wonderful escapism and a fabulous story that leaves you wanting more. I can't recommend Jake Atlas highly enough." * Fallen Star Stories * ""[...] amazing book [...] I recommend this spectacular read to kids 8-11yrs." * Anorak * "When the family go to Cairo on holiday, Jake and Pan's parents vanish, and it's up to the twins to find them." * Little London * "This is a fast paced adventure with plenty of action and humour that would suit most young teens. Even more appealing is the fact that unlike many books of this type, the children are the ones leading the chase and calling the shots." * The School Librarian * "This is Indiana Jones meets Mission Impossible with a touch of the Goonies thrown in for good measure." * South Wales Evening Post * "This is a fast paced adventure with plenty of action and humour that would suit most young teens. Even more appealing is the fact that unlike many books of this type, the children are the ones leading the chase and calling the shots." * The School Librarian * "It's great fun, the Egyptian settings giving it an extra edge and the developing relationship between Jake and Pan gives it a cool credibility too. This is definitely one to recommend to fans of the Alex Rider books, and readers would also enjoy Defender of the Realm by Nick Ostler and Mark Huckerby." * LoveReading Andrea Reece * Rob Lloyd Jones is author of the fantastic Wild Boy books, but he's swapped freak shows for treasure hunts in this fast-paced adventure. Young readers will love the natural-born troublemaker Jake: he's fun, charismatic and fearless. Some might also sympathise with secret-genius sister Pan. Rip-roaring action like this feels like it harks back to a more traditional idea of an adventure story, but it's a high-tech and up-to-the-minute modern take. * BookTrust * Page-turning historical adventure in the deserts of Cairo, from the author of the acclaimed Wild Boy books. * Bookseller *
Bloggat om Jake Atlas and the Tomb of the Emerald Snake
Rob Lloyd Jones never wanted to be a writer when he grew up - he wanted to be Indiana Jones. So he studied Egyptology and archaeology, and went on expeditions to strange places. But all he found were interesting stories, so he decided to write them down. Jake Atlas and the Tomb of the Emerald Snake is his third novel for Walker, although he's written about thirty other books for children, including historical non-fiction and adaptations of such classics as Jekyll and Hyde. Rob lives in East Sussex with his wife and two young sons.
