This book is fascinating. Grammatically, the French language is simple and well-written. The words are carefully chosen and cover much of the vocabulary of the first-year French textbooks. The book is written primarily in the present tense, but there are occasional sentences in the imperfect and past tenses. The story is set in Cairo, Egypt, and much of Egyptian culture is meticulously incorporated. This book will surely be part of my classroom library.
