Arkie Sparkle bk 1

Arkie Sparkle is 11 and the daughter of archeologist/treasure hunter parents. SHe gets home one day only to discover her parents have been kidnapped and in order to get them back she has to find seven treasures in seven days. To do this she is going to need the help of her cousin TJ, a junior genius, and TJ’s dog Cleo. The first treasure she has to find a golden statue of Queen Nefertari. This journey will take her to temple ruins in Egypt and back in time to when the temple was first discovered by archeologists.

Arkie is a young girl with a lot of spunk and her cousin TJ is a great counterpoint, always spouting off random facts. The tension of the situation is well presented and the different locations wonderfully bought to life. If you are looking for something fun, adventurous with a bit of history thrown in for good measure then definitely give these a shot. I think you will find them a fun series. There are also notes, illustrations and graphics to break up the text presentation a little.
