This book had me captivated from the moment I started it. A great read, full of danger and deceit, and an ancient legend. It was GREAT!

This book is one of a series of the wonderful, funny, and exciting adventures of Egyptologist Amelia Peabody and her family, which includes her husband Radcliffe Emerson (called Emerson by Amelia), and their son Walter, "called Ramses by his friends and an afreet (demon)by almost everybody else". After I read the first book in the series I was hooked! I've since read every book, and am now rereading this one. You don't have to have read the previous books to enjoy this one, though. Give it a try.....I think you'll like it.

Even though I have read and enjoyed ALL of Elizabeth Peter's works, I would have to say that 'the snake, the crocodile and the dog' is by far my favorate. This book features a strange but interesting blend of adventure, romance and Egyptology that kept me reading all night! Readers will especially enjoy the twist at the end of the book- I know I did.
