Bill and Pete Go Down the Nile is a cute and humorous story for kids and adults alike. DePaola, as always, has combined lovable characters, an interest-keeping storyline, and colorful, fun illustrations to make a wonderful book. This tale of friendship, family and heroism is touching and encouraging.
