This is a fantastic action adventure book for middle grades. Arkie Sparkle is a miniature Indiana Jones and she is on a quest to find her parents.

Arkie comes home from school to find the house open and her parents no where in sight.  After eating the last cookie in the cookie jar, she finds a ransom note.  Arkie now has to embark on an adventure to find clues to treasures and her parents. Arkie is no newbie to treasure hunting and has all the gadgets available under the sun.

Book 1 is day 1 of her adventure and sends her to Cairo. After fighting through a sandstorm and making historical friends, she has found what she is after, but this is only the beginning.  The accompanying illustrations and the cover are also great and something kids will love.
