Editorial Reviews

Review

From Publishers Weekly-

Following trips to Botswana and Great Bear Rainforest, this third installment in the series based on real-life brothers Gannon and Wyatt Wheeler sees the eponymous teenage twins journeying to Egypt to take part in an archaeological dig, in search of the fabled tomb of Cleopatra. Intellectual Gannon and wisecracking Wyatt squabble and attempt to one-up each other as they venture into the desert, where they brave sandstorms and their individual doubts and fears. When they find a long-lost tomb, which may belong to Egypt's legendary last Pharaoh, they must contend with booby traps and unscrupulous people bent on taking the treasure for themselves. Wheeler and Hemstreet pack this slim adventure full of facts and trivia, as well as photos and drawings, lending it an educational slant. With clear nods to Indiana Jones and other adventure stories, the fast-paced plot and engaging characters are sure to appeal to a young audience--particularly those familiar with sibling rivalry--who may be inspired to learn more about the associated Youth Exploration Society. Ages 9-12.

“Each of us has the responsibility to protect and enrich our community, to ensure that future generations inherit a healthy and vibrant planet. In each action-packed book, Travels with Gannon & Wyatt communicates these values and inspires young people to do their part to help make the world a better place.”
- Robert F. Kennedy, Jr."

Travels with Gannon & Wyatt is a phenomenal series that encourages the next generation of conservationists to push their boundaries and challenge themselves to explore life outside their comfort zones. A must read for any young person interested in the wild world of nature that sustains us all."
- Brigitte Griswold, Director of Youth Programs, The Nature Conservancy

Format: Hardcover
This is the third of the Gannon and Wyatt books. The first follows the brothers' adventures in Botswana and the second is set in British Columbia. This one is set in Egypt and offers the best combination of adventure and travelogue.

You could describe the books in this series as top flight reality-adventure-fiction. The books are composed of alternating travel journal entries authored by twin brothers Gannon and Wyatt. Gannon is a friendly loosey-goosey kind of guy and Wyatt is a more buttoned-down and serious sort.

While this book is fictional, it isn't just a novel, in the sense that the Hardy Boys books or Tom Swift books, or similar adventures, are primarily novels. These are fictional travel journals. Lots of exciting things happen, but they are recounted in the same diary form that you would expect from any actual explorer/adventurer. Some books in the series, (like the Botswana book), don't really have a plot, just travel incidents. This Egypt book has more of a plot, more drama, (a cave-in, a dust storm, tomb robbers, curses!), and feels a little more like a boys-own adventure.

That said, either version works. The two brothers have distinct voices and engaging personalities. The writing is a bit advanced to be from teenage journalists, but the author carefully balances creating authentic voices with writing at a high quality level. The result is that the boys feel authentic, but the writing is professional.

The author does a very satisfying job of getting the locations right. There is more of an attempt to lay the groundwork for this exotic adventure. There is interesting and well described travel through Cairo, along the Nile, and into Luxor .

This is the third in a series and I find the story line to be outstanding in adventure and intrigue. You are caught up in a whirlwind of "ins & outs" that will keep you guessing right down to the end. I think I can be honest to say that the series has grown leaps and bounds since first story line. It is a must read for your young readers but don't delay in browsing through the pages yourself.. you won't be surprised at the quality of the story. So, what are you waiting for...order the book and then sit back and enjoy! !Avid Reader

This is another great book from the Gannon & Wyatt series! I have enjoyed reading the other two books in the series and find the writing to be engaging and interesting. This book continues this and like in past books this one really sheds light on Egypt, but also brings you on an adventure from beginning to end. While I have loved all three books, I think this is the best written of the three and the author seems to be growing with each book that is written! So get ready for booby traps, sand storms and so much more, and you too will be transported to a new place. Get ready for an adventure because you are going to be taken on a fun ride!

Searching for the lost tomb of Cleopatra, Gannon and Wyatt had little idea they would be surrounded by grave robbers, nearly swept away by a sandstorm and almost buried in an earthquake – do they survive to face other adventures?

You’ll have to read this action packed, page turner to find out – and you’ll also discover the strange magic of Cairo and the haunting dangers of the dessert, along with the excitement of discovery.

This is another outstanding adventure tale – Hardy Boys – move over!

A student of mine started reading these books and now they have caught on fire with the stronger readers in my third grade classroom. The boys especially are talking about them and were excited when this newest one came out. Not only do I love to see them discussing and recommending books, but I know they are learning about these places as they read and so I am thrilled.

I read this series and it is now my favorite book series by far. I enjoyed Gannon and Wyatt's travels in Botswana, GBR, and Egypt. Keith Hemstreet does an amazing job with this series and I hope to see more from him in the future! By far my favorite book was Egypt. And I also recommend doing a book in the Florida Everglades or Keys. I can't wait for your next book.
