Synopsis: Eleven-year-old Horace j. Edwards is an ordinary boy whose family has just moved to Niles, Michigan. But on the first day of sixth grade, mysterious things start to happen. His grandfather dies and Horace receives a strange gift--a stone scarab beetle. As he works to uncover the secrets surrounding his grandfather's death and the beetle, Horace is transported back in time to the ancient Egyptian city of Amarna. He meets the future pharaoh, young King Tut, and together the two boys become engaged in a fight to save the city from total destruction and Egypt itself from Tut's evil uncle Smenk. In the process, Horace discovers that he is the heir to an order of guardians, known as the Keepers of Time. The Secret of the Scarab Beetle is the first book in the middle-grade fantasy series Horace j. Edwards and the Time Keepers.

From School Library Journal: Gr 4-6-When mild-mannered sixth grader Horace J. Edwards moves to the sleepy town of Niles, MI, his life takes an unexpected turn. A death occurs in the family, and mysterious things start to happen. Grandmother, who suffers from dementia, begs Horace to find the key, open the secret door, and help the boy, but Horace doesn't know what she's talking about. Then, a gift of a scarab beetle proves to be more than a trinket. Horace finds himself transported back to ancient Egypt, where he discovers the future King Tut in trouble. The story line does a nice job of introducing fascinating Egyptian tidbits with a modern twist. Readers interested in ancient Egypt and adventure will enjoy the juxtaposition between current life and ancient times. The mystery is not a complex maze of clues but a fun coming-of-age adventure. VERDICT An additional purchase where time travel titles and books set in the ancient world are in demand.-Robyn Gioia, Antilles Middle School, Fort Buchanan, Puerto Ricoα(c) Copyright 2011.
