The Emerald Ring is such a great Middle Grade book. This is a book I would love to read to my school kids and my kids at home. My daughter almost stole it from me when she read the title and saw it was about Cleopatra. She loves Egypt and anything having to do with Egypt. Even though she is a mid-teen, I know that she will love this story.It has mystery, adventure,intrigue and everything you love in a fantasy book.
Main character Sara is a typical 12 year old girl, though she does happen to find an emerald ring of her Grandmothers that… just happened to belong to Cleopatra. Then thieves come looking for the emerald. I liked how she had her problems, but that didn’t stop her from doing the things she should do and remaining a true friend. My favorite aspect of Sara were the dreams she had at night. She often would see things through the eyes of a cat. I am a cat owner and the author did a very good job of how a cat would see things. What a fun concept!
This book is a winner on so many levels. As a teacher I love how it explores aspects of history. I know kids between the ages of 7-14 will really love this book. Even this old kid enjoyed reading The Emerald Ring. I can’t wait to see what else comes next in the series as Cleopatra’s other jewels are brought into the story.
