The Egypt Game

By Zilpha Keatley Snyder (5)

Show/Hide Info

Dark forces and innocent invention collide in Zilpha Keatley Snyder’s The Egypt Game, a Newbery Honor winner. When April Hall unwillingly moves to a university town to live with her grandmother, the imaginative girl finds a friend and a new interest in the Egypt Game. April shares her love of the ancient realms with Melanie Ross, and the girls soon begin conducting their game in storage yard behind an antiques shop, which appears deserted and unclaimed. Soon the players expand to include Melanie’s brother, Marshall, and a girl named Elizabeth. The children set up altars and conduct secret ceremonies, which is all great fun until the murder of a neighborhood child makes it unsafe to continue the game. Later, under a cloak of secrecy, Toby and Ken join in, and the game becomes even more elaborate, complete with hieroglyphs and an oracle. In the frightening climax of the novel, April is attacked in the storage shed, and saved by Marshall and the reclusive Professor, owner of the antiques shop. The Professor reveals he has been covertly observing the children’s imaginative renderings of ancient Egypt, which has given him a renewed zest for life. After the Professor hands over the key to the storage yard to the delighted children, they begin reimagining the game, noting that the Egypt game must be voided as it has lost its aura of secrecy. A well-plotted novel, Snyder’s novel is rich in child fantasy and imaginative detail, while the dark, suspenseful undertone gives this novel an edge that will appeal to children of middle school years.
