4.0 out of 5 stars Walk like an Egyptian 13 July 2006
By Amanda Richards - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
This is book two of the Ulysses Moore series, and the story picks up the adventure immediately after the first book (The Door to Time) closed off. In the previous episode, twins Jason and Julia and their friend Rick find that there's a lot more to Kilmore Cove than meets the eye. After solving many brain-teasing riddles and surviving lots of physical challenges, they discover an ancient ship, the "Metis", hidden in an underground grotto. The next thing they know they find themselves in ancient Egypt, courtesy of the magical ship, and there's somebody or something knocking on the other side of the wall.

As we pick up the action, the wall caves in under the onslaught from the other side, and during the mad scramble to escape, Julia finds herself not only separated from the boys, but back where she started, and back in the present. Jason and Rick have only one chance to get back home, and that is to locate the long-lost map (hence the title) which is hidden somewhere in the Land of Punt in ancient Egypt.

Assisted by a new friend, the boys face yet another set of mental and physical challenges, as they learn the complicated filing system of the time (the early Dewey Decimal Classification perhaps), improve their knowledge of Egyptian mythology, and outwit the bad guys (or should I say bad girl) from the present time who's also after the map for her own nefarious purposes. Meanwhile, back in the present, Julia also has her hands full, assisting the caretaker Nestor to stave off an attack by an evil henchman with a plan of his own.

Patterned off the Lemony Snicket books to a large extent, the dialogue and writing style is for slightly younger readers than the ones who devour each new Rowling, Colfer, Funke, Nix, or Riordan book, but would be suitable for the 8 - 10 age group. This is a great book to spark a young reader's interest in Egyptian mythology, as well as puzzle solving and logic.

4.0 out of 5 stars This Book Belongs in Your Library 5 Mar 2007
By CCS Middle School - Published on Amazon.com
The book: Ulysses Moore: The Lost Map was an excellent read and belongs on your book case. Its educational, exciting, and all about Egypt!

The story takes place in the land of punt: a forgotten Egyptian city lost in time. Ulysses Moore (the man who found this land before the children) is dead now and its up to recover the map of Kilmore Cove. It all starts when the kids walk into the chest and make a mess. Julia, and Rick are twins, and Jason is a young boy with a "devil tongue".

When they walk threw the door they find them selves in a humongous storage room. They hear tapping and all of the sudden the walls start crashing down and the boys are trapped in Punt, with there sister outside of the door! In the book before the children are trying to find a map and discover the secrets left behind by Ulysses. That book continued into this book. Now that the boys are in Punt they meet a young girl named Maruk. She will be there guide threw the Land of Punt. With only Mr. Moore's journal, they will find the map and hopefully return home safely.

I loved this book. If you like adventure, comedy, and even action this book is for you. The best thing about this book is that the author knows how to make the characters sound realistic and alive. Especially in the beginning they give us an "e-mail" from Michael Merryweather explaining that he found the second manuscript to the Ulysses Moore mystery. I find this amusing even though it isn't real, it makes you feel as if your becoming a detective yourself; solving the mystery, and watching as the children make there way through the Land of Punt.

I did not like this book because at the very end they continued to a different book. Honestly I would like to know the end of the story and if the bad guy gets away with it right now! I don't want to go out and buy the book and them read the whole thing just to see what happened!!!

I would recommend this book to anyone who is an aspiring Egyptologist, like me. I also would recommend this book to children over 10, because it has something that you might have to figure out in your head, or really think about it.

4.0 out of 5 stars Next Great Series 29 July 2006
By Mr. Chad J. Mitchell - Published on Amazon.com
I work for a children's book publishing company as a sales rep. I try to always read either the books I sell or what the competition is selling. You can imagine. I read a lot of books. In fact, I would rather read these books now than the more adult oriented ones.

With that said, this is a really good series. I would describe it as a chapter book for the next level of readers. This is a great series for those who have graduated from Magic Tree House, Secrets of Droon, etc.

The stories are long enough to give more substance but short enough to just have to spend an afternoon on. There is continuous action and real nice character developement. In fact, it replaces Fowl as my favorite series in this age group. I look forward to the end of this year. Book three: The House of Mirrors is due then.
5.0 out of 5 stars senior reader 15 Aug 2006
By senior citizen - Published on Amazon.com
my book came in the mail and i got my glass of water and munchies and sat down to read. wonderful fun and adventure. i intend to purchase all the future books to pass to my niece. it has the same mystery writing as the first with lots of twists and turns. wonderful escape telling in tunnels and the villian is nasty as she should be. i give it a 5 for there is no naughty words or parts any child couldn't read. good great fun and adventure with thrills and wonders through out the book. hope all the future books are as fun as these first two. enjoy.
