Reviews of Kiwi in the Realm of Ra by Vickie Johnstone

Ed Drury reviewed on April 3, 2014

As a long time fan of the Kiwi series, I found this latest installment to be perhaps the best so far. With each book, the adventures become more complex and imaginative as new characters are introduced and old ones become integrated into the Kiwi world.

Although I read book two of the series first, the continuity of the series lends itself to reading them in order to get the most enjoyment and after reading Kiwi in Cat City, I have been faithful to that formula. I can tell that the author has been responsive to her readers when in this volume she explains that the cats are consuming lactose free milk products. The fact that all cats are lactose intolerant escaped even T.S. Elliot so the passing mention of this in the book should be acknowledged and appreciated by all who pick up on it.

The new characters in this book are delightful additions to the lore of Cat City and the story is fast paced and entertaining as always. If you like the Kiwi series, this is a must have and if you haven't gotten hooked on the series as of yet I highly recommend reading it in order. That said, this book reads well on its own and should provoke investigation into the previous works. It is, after all, a book about history.

Vickie Johnstone has a wonderful imagination when it comes to writing adventures for Kiwi and her friends. In this book, she takes us to Ancient Egypt.

I could tell that a lot of research was done for this book. The descriptions of the pyramids, people, villages, etc are very well written with just enough information to set the scene but not too much to bog down the story.

The characters in the story are so engaging that the reader can picture the action as he/she reads the story. If you haven't read the previous Kiwi books, you should. I recommend reading the series beginning with "Kiwi in Cat City" so you get to know all the characters as they are introduced and the adventures they have together.

I highly recommend this book for kids of all ages, 9 to 99.
