About the Book

In their last adventure, Cody, Eric, and Rachel were clever enough to fool townspeople with a homemade “ancient Egyptian” tablet. Their exploits brought some much-needed tourism to Sultana, Manitoba, but their deception ensured they would spend the summer doing community service. While mowing the grass in the local cemetery, they stumble across some ancient stones that seem to indicate this was a sacred site long before the arrival of European settlers. All of a sudden, they find themselves on a rescue mission in a world beyond their imagination. Will their quick thinking and knack for history be enough to get them home? Modern-day adventure and ancient civilizations meet in Book Two of the Shenanigans series.
