"Magical realism and Jewish history merge in this exciting adventure in which twins Scarlett and Sam travel back in time to Egypt to help Moses convince Pharaoh to free the slaves. Simple language makes it easy for kids to absorb the story, and the two unique main characters deliver witty remarks. Energy, suspense, and Jewish scholarship sweep Scarlett and Sam off their feet, literally, and into a world of peril and delight. Ages seven and up."
-- Foreword Reviews

"a Passover-themed book that seems to be the first to fill a much-needed niche in Jewish children's literature."
-- Jewish Journal

"Kimmel keeps the story flowing at a rapid pace, employing 21st-century tone and syntax for the twins as well as the ancients with whom they interact . . . it's accessible for modern young readers of all religions and makes it possible for them to gain a modicum of understanding of this distant, biblical past."
-- Kirkus Reviews
