A cute and joyful read for late primary/early high school students that centres around Olive Black, a student and famous actress.
The Olive Black series sees our protagonist involved in different adventures in each book. This novel has her filming a movie set in Egypt and studying ancient Egypt in class. An age appropriate novel that begins to explore issues of friendship and family while remaining fun and hopeful. The illustrations are beautiful too and had to the joy of the series.
The book could be used for a cross-curricular project between English and HSIE, and Teachers could definitely steal the idea Egypt Alive for their own classes.
A cute and enjoyable book that would help encourage young readers to read.
