Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Cara Chancellor
Based on Rick Riordan's "The Kane Chronicles" series, this companion book is a brief encyclopedia of Egyptian hieroglyphs, gods and history, as well as a summary of the powers and allies of siblings Carter and Sadie Kane. It is parallel in format and content to The Ultimate Guide to the "Percy Jackson and the Olympians" series, also by Riordan. The guide features short paragraphs and plentiful full-color, glossy illustrations that should delight readers of the series. Also included is a fold-over, magnetic closure cover with lenticular printing and four triangle-shaped character trading cards that can be assembled into a freestanding pyramid. Fans of "The Kane Chronicles" will enjoy having a reference that both compiles and goes beyond some of the explanation in the books, but those unfamiliar with the series will not find enough narrative here to dive into the story. Reviewer: Cara Chancellor

THE KANE CHRONICLES SURVIVAL GUIDE DISNEY HYPERION BOOKS REVIEWER:REBECCA I have a (physical) copy of this wonderful guide to the Kane Chronicles. This book has back stories to the Chronicles. Did you know Ruby Kane's amulet was an ankh? As this book was released prior to the release of THE SERPENT'S SHADOW, nome of the information from that story is enclosed in this guide.

NOT FOR NOOK HD (no PagePerfect, i.e. graphically enhanced, books are).   They don't tell you this when you purchase a NOOK HD - which is the updated version of the Nook Color. The newest reader gets fewer compatible books, and none with enhanced graphics!  Nice.

I rlly cant wait for the Serpent's Shadow!!!!! But btw, the person who said he's Mr. Riordan's son is most likely lying. If he (or she) knows how books r printed, the book is probably being printed or sitting in boxes waiting 4 may 1st so tht it can b shelved.
