Product Description

Review

If you were appointing a time-traveller to report back on life in first-century Rome, you couldn't do better than Caroline Lawrence (Mary Greene DAILY MAIL)

the mysteries solved by her child detectives, and devoured by eight to 12-year-olds, are set against a background that brings ancient history vividly alive. (Mary Greene DAILY MAIL)

Caroline Lawrence is good at this stuff; education with a flavour of the Famous Five. (BOOKWITCH) --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

Book Description

Format: Hardcover
Puzzling riddles, clever anagrams, and hidden meanings in names make this one of Caroline Lawrence's most fun-filled additions to her popular Roman Mysteries series!

As with all her books in the series, The Scribes from Alexandria offers us a glimpse into the ancient world -- this time finding our dauntless detectrix, Flavia Gemina, traveling through Egypt, hot on the trail of a runaway scribe from the famous Library of Alexandria.

Caroline Lawrence even provides an accompanying, illustrated "Latin Alphabet in Hieroglyphs" so that you can try your hand at being a scribe by writing your own name in ancient Egyptian style.

This book is another triumph for Caroline Lawrence -- and another joy for her readers!

The Scribes from Alexandria is another beautifully written book by Caroline Lawrence - the fifteenth in the Roman Mysteries. Set in Egypt, Flavia Gemina is once again solving a mystery : on the trail of a runaway scribe. The book also includes a heiroglyphic chart.The plot is full of wonderful cliff-hangers, twists and turns. It is also very imformative about Ancient Egypt. Buy this book if you love the Roman Mysteries or want to learn about ancient history. A joy to read!

One of my favourites, this is one for all who love Egypt. Despite not having an actual mystery in my books, Scribes makes up for it by the riddles, which, I am very proud to say, could actually solve. (Just one, but I'm bad at riddles.) The scenes with Nubia and Chryses were cute, the new characters were fun and likable, and the ending was hilarious. As Jonathan would say 'these Egyptians are crazy'. I loved Lawrence's continued attention to detail and how Egypt came to life, and her tour around Alexandria. Those who like Rome, kid detectives and Egypt under Roman rule will like it, but perhaps read the previous books to get some background.

This is the first Caroline Lawrence book I've read, and I thoroughly enjoyed it. The characters are engaging - I particularly liked the scribes - and the story moves along at a good lick: but what I most enjoyed was the way it takes you right into a far-distant world. CL seems to be completely at ease here; every detail rings true. Am full of admiration for the amount of research she must have done, and the ease with which the book wears it.

My daughter adored this series and knows more than me about the Romans and all other ancient civilizations now. A real good read for a child. Amusing her, she read it many times over.

This book is so far the best of the Roman mysteries series yet,
and Caroline has been very clever with the whole scribe theme.
Amazing, about to go and read the next book.
