I liked this book.

This book made me think more about friendship.

This book was good but not the best. I liked this book because it made me think of how important friendship really is. Even if you just have one really good friend there by your side you can accomplish anything. That is what this book is all about.

AWSOME BOOK

I learned more about Jewish history from this book.

I learned so much about history in this book and even though it was fiction I actually learned more about how Jews escaped from Egypt more than i ever learned at home on the computer researching.

It was okay I guess but it was to short but comming from me that is probably not true since I am a huge major bookworm so it's probably fine for you.

This book taught me more about Israel.

I read half of it and it was kinda childish.

"Escape from Egypt" was good but it ended too abruptly.

This book made me think more about the importance of family.

"Escape from Egypt" is a good book. It is suspenseful and adventurous. The story ended too quickly though. They had just introduced this new character, Juba, and they had just escaped from Egypt. There is more to the story than that! Instead of continuing on with the story the author decided to send Scarlett and Sam back home. Overall, this was a good book though.

Fun to read!!

This book made me think more about the importance of family.

At first the brother and sister argued about who would ask the four questions. Through their adventure they came to understand it could be done together. Also, I really liked the wild beasts being dinosaurs, not the usual animals.

I read this book within a day!

I learned more about Jewish history from this book.

This book is about two twins named Scarlet and Sam who go back in time to ancient Egypt on a magic carpet. Along their journey, they meet Moses, his sister Miriam, and Aaron, his brother (I think). They also meet Pharaoh's son, who they become great friends with. They leave on the magic carpet and get back home just in time for their Passover Seder.

Good if you like Percy Jackson themes
Submitted 3/1/2017 by Design Team

Twins Scarlet and Sam are going to have dinner at their grandmother’s house. She always says her antique carpet was woven by magic. They had always thought that carpet was weird but what happened next was even weirder than that.
I think that this book starts a bit slowly.
However If you like Percy Jackson you will probably like this book because both books tie together ancient and modern.

Eric Kimmel

Author of Scarlett and Sam Escape from Egypt

“When I discovered that people wrote the books I loved, I decided, “That’s for me!” No other career ever seemed as exciting or as interesting.”

Eric Kimmel wanted to be an author when he was in kindergarten. The first book he ever bought with his own money was John Myers Myers’ The Alamo. Although he was from Brooklyn, he loved Texas history, and he had a complete set of Davy Crockett trading cards.

His Yiddish-speaking Grandma lived with the family. Her scary stories about ghosts, goblins, and devils inspired Eric to write stories based on Jewish folklore.

Eric has written over 130 books and has won the National Jewish Book Award five times.
