All looks hopeless for the young teenager as Joseph's brothers sell him into slavery in Egypt. Has Charlatan returned to Egypt to once again stop Max and Liz from accomplishing their mission? With the help of two new characters, a British archeologist mouse and a forlorn camel, they must combat the forces of evil that are out to thwart their plans, leading them into mysterious adventures with pyramids and mummies. If Max and Liz fail in this mission, all of Egypt will suffer from famine, and the Hebrew nation will never be born.
Abounding in life lessons on struggle, enduring trials, forgiveness, and redemption, The Dreamer, the Schemer, & the Robe is a nonstop thriller filled with twists and turns, side-splitting humor, treachery and heartache, hope and forgiveness.

sunshineAge: Under 185 Stars Out Of 5Awesome book!March 17, 2014sunshineAge: Under 18Quality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5The Dreamer, the Schemer, and the Robe is an adventures story during the time of Joseph. Four animals, Max, Kate (dogs), Al, and Liz (cats), are working for God, helping mankind throughout biblical times. They encounter friends from different countries like: Osahar, a loud bactrian camel, and Nigel, a British mouse. These four animals travel with Joseph in his time in Egypt. His brothers, as they live with the guilt of selling him as a slave.
They live from anywhere from the jail house all the way to the house of Pharaoh. But, there are forces of evil working against them. Can these for animals stop this evil before time runs out?
...Jenny Cote has written yet another magnificent piece! She brings her characters to life, adding personalities to people we may only know a name for, and many historical facts in The Dreamer, the Schemer, and the Robe...
I have read all of her published books so far (her next book is coming out in late February!) and I am amazed at all she has been able to do through this series. The main characters are animals, which some might consider childish, but the stories are not written for little three year old's. (but the stories could be read to them!) Anyone from young ages on up can read this series, for it has much to teach us all!
The story engages it's reader to use their imagination, visiting many countries in her first book in this series, The Ark, the Reed, and the Fire Cloud. In the second book, we visit Egypt, as well as Joseph's family back home in Canaan. Even though her books may seem daunting to read because of their size, you will not want to put them down!
I encourage you to read this book, and the others in her series. If you like historical fiction, biblical stories (with some imagination mixed in), as well as the love to read, then this book is probably for you!

Army MomAge: 45-54Gender: female5 Stars Out Of 5Fantastic BookJanuary 31, 2014Army MomAge: 45-54Gender: femaleQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5This the second book in the Amazing tales of Max and Liz. In this installment, God sends our hero's, Max, Kate, Liz and Al to Egypt help in Joseph's life after he is sold into slavery.
This author has done an amazing job of breathing life into characters that we think that we know and characters that we just get a glimpse of when we read about them in scripture. She also has included an amazing amount of research into this life and the history of this ancient culture.
It is an excellent book, as well done as the first. It is a larger book, 450 pages and is written for ages 8-12, but I think anyone of any age would enjoy it.
