About the Author
R. L. LaFEVERS grew up in Los Angeles, California surrounded by a gaggle of brothers who taught her an awful lot about how to get into mischief of all kinds, much like our clever Theodosia Throckmorton. When getting her brothers out of scrapes (again, like Theo), she usually had her nose buried in a book. Now she lives on a small ranch in Southern California with her husband, two teenaged sons (who are also very good at getting into mischief and scrapes of one sort or another), a dog who thinks he's a person, and a cat who is really a tigress in disguise. YOKO TANAKA lives in Los Angeles and Bangkok with her husband and three cats. Aside from illustrating Book I & II of the Theodosia Throckmorton series, she illustrated forthcoming novel The Magician's Elephant (Candlewick) by Kate DiCamillo. Her artwork may be found at http: //www.yokotanaka.com.
"Clever and exciting, just like the previous book, this also features a layered relationship between Theodosia and her grandmother. Nonstop action in a delightfully English package." Booklist "Archaeology and fantasy fans alike will find much to love in this magical tale chock-full of ancient Egyptian artifacts and details. Theodosia's first-person narration is often very funny as she deals with the adults around her, and the plot is quick and multilayered like a well-wrapped mummy." School Library Journal
