9780989365505: Rocket Robinson and the Pharaoh's Fortune

Set in Egypt in the 1930s, this graphic novel adventure story follows the exploits of 12-year-old adventurer Rocket Robinson who, along with his monkey sidekick, tries to unravel the mystery of a hidden, ancient treasure located somewhere in the city of Cairo. Along the way he befriends Nuri, a gypsy girl who shows him the secrets of Cairo’s subterranean world. But before long they encounter master criminal Otto von Stürm and his bloodthirsty henchmen, who will stop at nothing to find the treasure before our heroes. Fans of classic adventure storytelling at any age will love seeing the streets of Cairo brought to life in these lively, vibrant pages, while young fans of ancient Egypt will immediately be drawn in by the references to hieroglyphics, mummies, pyramids, and pharaoh’s tombs. Designed for beginning to intermediate readers, the story is free of inappropriate language, gender, or ethnic stereotypes as well as violent images, so it’s truly for comic fans of all ages. But don’t worry—it’s still packed with action, danger, and plenty of fun!

About the Author:

Sean O'Neill is a writer and illustrator whose work has appeared in publications by Capstone Press, Harcourt, McGraw-Hill, and many others. He lives in Chicago.

From Booklist:

Take a lot of young Indiana Jones, sprinkle in some Tintin, and you’ve got a good idea of what to expect from Rocket Robinson as he sprints through 1930s Cairo in search of hidden treasure. After finding a note written in hieroglyphics, then being kidnapped by the nefarious Otto Von Stürm, who wants his note back, Rocket knows something big is going down in the old city. After teaming up with a local gypsy girl, the two kids race the clock—and the bad guys—to unscramble the coded hieroglyphs, answer the riddle enclosed, and find the ancient artifacts hidden somewhere in the Valley of the Kings before Von Stürm and his henchmen can smuggle the treasure out of Egypt. The action sequences fly fast and furiously, tempered by detailed explanations of ciphers, maps, and how the pyramids were built. O’Neill’s art is dramatic, if a bit inconsistent, and his panel layouts are sometimes better suited to the movies than to paper, but young readers just discovering pulpy adventure stories will be appropriately thrilled. Grades 3-6. --Eva Volin
