The book takes place in Egypt where an archeologist discovers a pyramid out in Egypt. A kid named Gabe was sent to the archaeologist with his daughter named Sari. Gabe, Sari, and her father Ben found a secret mummification chamber to be seen by a worker named Amad who is supposed to kill them for entering the chamber.... if you like suspensful and surprising events you will like this book. -JP

Gabe is always feeling inferior to his cousin, Sari, and he wishes he could finally get one up on her. When she saves his life twice, however, there just doesn't seem to be any hope. One of his uncle's assistants keeps talking about the curse on the pyramid, and when he and Sari discover what the curse is all about, Gabe gets a chance to take control and save Sari's life.

Gabe, a boy on vacation in Cairo, Egypt with is parents (who are there on business) is looking forward to spending some time with his Uncle Ben who lives in Cairo and works at the Great Pyramid. When his parents suddenly receive a call, Gabe finds he's not going to see the pyramid OR his Uncle and he's not happy about that. With a bit of finagling Uncle Ben agrees to let Gabe stay with him for a couple of weeks while his parents are in Alexandria...the catch, Gabe's cousin (and nemesis...as much as a kid has a nemesis) Sari is also visiting and determined to show Gabe up at every opportunity. After a night alone and a bit of a scare due to a practical joke, Gabe, Sari and Uncle Ben are off to the pyramid where they meet Uncle Ben's workers and hear all about a "curse" that one of the workers feels has been unleashed because they've defiled the tomb. Everyone seems to laugh it off...but is there something to this curse? Ultimately, it is this competitive nature between them that leads to pranks and constant "one-upping" with exploring the Pyramid dig site that ultimately gets reveals some strange and unusual goings on in the Pyramid. The Curse of the Mummy's Tomb is the fifth book in the Goosebumps series and has some genuine scares, creepy atmosphere, and actual danger (compared to other books I've read in this series), but they are "junior" scares, not as fleshed out or graphic as they might be. This is an easy, entertaining read for kids ages 8-12, probably best suited for those about 8-10 years old...older kids will probably find the plot and writing too simple to really be enjoyable or believable. I give it four stars and would recommend it as good "lite-horror" for kids.
