Most who read my blog know my girls love everything and anything Princess related.
So when I was selected to review the Travels with Gannon & Wyatt Series, I was excited to see what kinds of adventures the two young boys would get involved in these books.
Once I received the books in the mail, I skimmed through all three copies to find the main characters, real-life twin brothers traveled to all sorts of wonderful places including The Great Bear Rainforest, Botswana and even Egypt.
As I took a further glance, I knew my girls would love to be transported to their travels in Egypt, because the book central theme and plot finds the boys studying with the world-renowned archeologist Dr. Mohammed Aziz on a journey to find the long lost tomb of Pharaoh Cleopatra.
Cleopatra was a princess in her early years and knew this would totally interest my little princesses once they heard this.
As we started to read Travels With Gannon and Wyatt Egypt, my girls genuinely seemed intrigued, even though they are on the younger side for this series, which is a middle-grade adventure series written by Patti Wheeler and Keith Hemstreet.
The two brother personalities resonated with them. Emma is more like Wyatt, who is the more quiet, but determined of the two brothers and Lily is definitely more like Gannon with her jovial personality, who more times then not is found teasing and pulling her own sorts of tricks on her sister, Emma.
I saw this first hand, Emma got very concerned, at the beginning of the book, when Gannon played a trick on Wyatt making Wyatt believe he was not picked for the expedition to Egypt. Emma told me that this act was not very nice.Emma & I Reading-Travels with Gannon and Wyatt Egypt
I will say that Lily does have a shorter attention span still only being 3 years old and didn’t in the end seems to want to stay with the book with me, so I just let that be. But Emma, who loves reading and to be read to, stuck with the boys adventures in Egypt with me, as they dealt with all sorts of stumbling blocks, such as deadly snakes, scary booby traps and even the concept of age old curses coming back to haunt them.
We also loved the fact that the book was told first hand through entries in the boys’ journals all while being kept on the edge of our seats with all the excitement that was shared from start to finish in this book.
