The Secret of the Hidden Scrolls series follows siblings Peter and Mary and their dog, Hank, as they discover ancient scrolls that transport them back to key moments in biblical history.
In The Great Escape, Peter, Mary, and Hank journey to the pyramid-studded desert of ancient Egypt. When the trio become friends with Pharaohs daughter, they witness first-hand as Moses petitions Pharaoh for the Israelites freedom. Plagues wreak havoc as the group races to decode the scroll, gets chased by a panther, and battles Pharaohs cunning advisor, the Great Magician. Young readers will anxiously follow along as Peter and Marys thrilling adventures bring the biblical story of Exodus to life.
Mike Thomas grew up in Florida playing sports and riding his bike to the library and an arcade named the Cosmic Cowboy. He graduated from Liberty University, earning a bachelors degree in Bible Studies. When his son Peter was nine years old, Mike went searching for books that would teach Peter about the Bible in a fun, imaginative way. Finding none, he decided to write his own series. Mike Thomas lives in Tennessee with his wife, Lori; two sons, Payton and Peter; and their dog, Hank.

A fast paced read with great messages of faith. The Egyptians worshipped many gods, and treated the Israelites terribly, Peter and Mary stand for what is right as they search for clues. Great moments of action and good natured humor as well.
Overall this is a fantastic book series for chapter book readers, fast paced adventure with illustrations every few pages, with well spaced and sized print. It is very hard to find quality chapter books for young eager reader, let alone ones with a great biblically based storyline and good themes of right and wrong, with GOd and his word at the center, but this book series definitely helps to fill that gap. I serve at my church with the church library, and this series has already been very popular in the short time that it has been available, so I am pleased that more books are being released in this great series. Perfect for young readers!
