So we were excited to find out that there were not one, but two more books in the series! This being one of them!
Alas, like the "Strega Nona" sequels, "Bill and Pete Go Down the Nile" suffers from sequelitis: a little contrived, with good characterizations in search of an equally good story, falling short with a predictable plot involving a field trip on Egyptian history complete with sphinx jokes and t.p. mummies and all the rest of it. Nothing as fun as the wry crocodile skin suitcase jokes of the original.
But who cares! We didn't -- well, not too much. This book was an excuse for hearing those silly voices again, and that was enough for us.
It's a cute little story about a crocodile named Bill and his toothebrush Pete. They go on a class trip down the Nile to see the sights of Egypt, inuding the stinks (Sphinx, lol).
It is a little disjointed in the introduction of the "bad guy", but over all the story is cute without being overly long. It's a simple, short read meant for elementary school.
