Comments The Jewel Fish of Karnak

  1. The genre of this book is historical fiction The recommended reading level are the middle grades, fourth through sixth grade This book is very interesting I ve never read a Graeme Base book before, so I had no idea what to expect The illustrations are amazing There is so much detail in each of the pages I love how you can see reflections in the water and on the floor It s really cool how there are hieroglyphic Egyptian tablets The first time I read the story I didn t really pay much attention to [...]


  2. To be honest It s not my favourite of Graeme Base s books I can t exactly explain why though It has Base s usual amazing and detailed pictures, an interesting story line and mystery Definitely worth a read



  3. Jackal and Ibis are caught stealing from the market The Cat Pharoah sends them to retrieve a jewel fish that the Crocodile Prince stole from her, warning them not to take anything else and not to let the magic jewel fish get wet I was so excited to see this book at the library and, since I m going to visit my daughters this weekend, I thought it would be a great book to bring along plus, I REALLY like figuring out the puzzles in Graeme Base books.As usual, the illustrations are gorgeous Rich in [...]


  4. I love Graeme Base All of his books are so beautiful This is the first actual STORY that I have read by him the others were counting alphabet books and I loved it It s about a couple of thieves in ancient Egypt who have to prove themselves to the Pharaoh She gives them the task of stealing back her special Jewel Fish, but they are not allowed to steal anything else or get the Jewel Fish wet Naturally, they do both of these things and they run into trouble and the fish slips from their hands into [...]


  5. Jackal and Ibis will be pardoned for their crimes if they are able to bring the Jewel Fish of Karnak back to the Cat Pharoh But they must not take any other treasures in the process or get the jeweled fish wet Of course what do you expect of two thieves They can t resist some extra treasure and their greed gets their boat sunk and the jeweled fish comes to life and swims away But the pharoh has mercy on them since they come back and confess what happens They will be pardoned if they can catch th [...]


  6. 3.5This fit in the better than Enigma, less impressive than The Eleventh Hour, better than many of the recent Base picture books realm to me I enjoy mythology and Egypt, and the illustrations were quite impressive Those are what earned the round up I wasn t in total love, but I liked this book and I d recommend it The introduction of multi platform, luring readers in the end to the website, is to be expected in this day and age However, I prefer the sealed explanation pages in the back of The E [...]


  7. Review by Kelly administration The age range of this book changes depending on what aspect of the book you are tuned in to The story itself is a pleasing and straightforward tale about being responsible for your actions, and the consequences of being dishonestTER the story, though, is the interactive portion of the book There is a puzzle you have to figure out Involving the books own version of hieroglyphs, some search and find, matching, the alphabet and other mental gymnastics, a kid could eas [...]

  9. Graeme Base is one of my favorite go to authors His illustrations are beautiful and he creates these wonderful alternate worlds This one was a fun story with a bit of a moral My four year olds and seven year old like it I did, too.


  10. Well, this was a disappointment I enjoyed the illustrations, of course, particularly when Ibis and Jackal are in the felucca with the Nile waters sparkling and reflecting the trees on shore However, I couldn t enjoy the end of the story, because the dust jacket, upon the back of which was the map, was covered in plastic and taped down to the book, and the wheels of the ancient mechanism by which you were supposed to determine the pattern of jewels on the missing fish was half covered over by the [...]


  11. The caught thieves, Jackal and Ibis, to atone for their crime must return the Jewel Fish that was taken from the Pharaoh by the Crocodile Prince The journey is not too bad, but the Pharaoh s commands to not get the Fish wet and to take no other treasure are a bit harder on the thieves However, they successfully find the fish Only to make two mistakes that the reader will have to help solve the puzzle to put right Base is back at his best with amazingly detailed and puzzle picture hiding drawings [...]


  12. This is such a neat book There is a map printed on the other side of the dust jacket, a huge moving decoder embedded into the back cover, hidden puzzles, and a real life prize But don t pick it up from the library This is one of the few instances where in their efforts to protect the book, they will actually damage it Most libraries will tape dust jackets to the book, so they aren t misplaced This prevents you from utilizing the map or decoder, and ultimately you can t solve the puzzle without t [...]


  13. As always, Graeme Base s art is beautiful The story is a bit minimal and not very fulfilling without the added fun of the puzzle I went to the website in hopes of finding something to distract a hyper 6 year old daughter while my wife napped I inadvertently paged through the hints and May caught the hint from only a moment s revelation She was so proud of herself and happy to get the Cat Pharaoh s reward Now she wants puzzle books.


  14. A fantastic story, and wonderful to read aloud Although Graeme Base s artwork is wonderful, I wish that the illustrations were a bit genuine There is also a reference to emeralds, rubies, and topaz that was a little dissappointing why choose the obvious stones over essential Egyptian ones


  15. Beautifully illustrated riddle and puzzle book set in ancient Egypt Silly me, I went through and jotted down all of the clues before I started to decipher the hieroglyphics I should have known better The very first spread practically gave me a Rosetta stone


  16. Another puzzling read from Graeme Base There s three things going on here the words, the pictures and then the hieroglyphs to decode And then when you get to the end, you re supposed to figure out which fish is the jewel fish of Karnak based on clues along the way I failed.


  17. The old man said not to feed them after midnight Why did you feed them after midnight oh, wrong story, barely I enjoyed how it s up to the reader to bring about closure by decoding the hieroglyphics version of the story along the bottom quarter of each page.


  18. This is an amazingly beautiful book Gorgeous illustrations, children and adults can think about the culture of the Pharaohs and Egypt and the Nile, and it has a very interesting game in the back, that is interactive.


  19. An Ancient Egyptian fable beautifully illustrated by Graeme Base The two animals can t resist taking treasure for themselves, in spite of the Pharaoh s warning not to All the fun for the puzzle to solve at the back, it s not so easy


  20. I was torn between 3 and 4 stars for this one The story is ok, but the illustrations and extras are what make this book grand You can get a Jewel Fish print out and have the kids make and color their own There is also a video that goes with this to show you how to make it Pretty cool


  21. I m going to have to go through it again to figure out the mystery before I rate it Illustrations are wonderful I was reading a library copy so I didn t get to play with the decoder on the back cover




  22. Pretty illustrations Did not like the ending It felt like a ploy to get people to visit their website Love ancient Egypt stories though.






  23. Absolutely amazing Such beautiful illustrations 1 of Oliver my favourites to snuggle up with we think we have completed the Quest to find the Jewel Fish Will check online tomorrow.
