    1. f the cover hasn't brought it to mind yet, by the time you are on the first page you will be thinking "Tintin". A fair enough comparison as the art style has a flourish of that French-style that makes Tintin so recognizable and then the story is full of adventure, globe-trotting, a German bad guy, ancient relics and archaeology. But O'Neill brings his own creativity to the table creating a unique character in Rocket Robinson and his partner Nuri, a gypsy girl. Even though set in 1930's Egypt, he [...]


    2. The perfect scenario for this book unfolded like this: Printer's Row Lit Fest 2016, walking around with my son. We spot an author with a table later in the day on Sunday. We catch him at a moment where we can grab his full attention and he explains the basis of the book-- graphic novel, young boy goes on a treasure hunt in Egypt beneath the pyramids and gets tangled up with some unsavory characters (bad guys). My son is hooked and I'm on the line for $20, but for an autograph and an experience i [...]


    3. A copy of this book was provided to me by the publisher in exchange for an honest review. I read half of this graphic novel. It was cute; but it didn't capture my interest. The story moved agonizingly slow. I'm not sure kids would like that. I did find many elements, like the monkey, quite charming. However, all in all it just didn't hold my interest and I didn't feel like finishing the story. I'm not sure if I'd recommend it to anyone, perhaps someone who really likes Egypt and adventure storie [...]



    4. This is the complete review as it appears at my blog dedicated to reading, writing (no 'rithmatic!), movies, & TV. Blog reviews often contain links which are not reproduced here, nor will updates or modifications to the blog review be replicated here.I rated this graphic novel worthy. There is a couple of images from the comic artowrk on my blog.(spoilers)Here it is: THIRTY ONE TITLES IN THIRTY ONE DAYS - and they said it couldn't be done! See my blog for the full list.This is a comic book o [...]


    5. This is a delightful comic (graphic) novel for younger readers. What ten year old boy doesn't like the idea of: 1) cracking a code that adults can't crack; 2) discovering a heretofore forgotten Egyptian tomb, complete with treasure; 3) having a pet monkey; 4) hanging out with a girl who seems pretty 'cool?'I still remember when I 'discovered' ancient Egypt in school and learned about the treasures hidden in the pyramids. And of course I had the childhood fantasies of making my own discoveries. T [...]


    6. Rocket Robinson and the Pharaoh's is a story in comic book format. Rocket Robinson is an ambassador's son. Rocket wasn't happy that he has to leave Spain for Egypt. While on the train, he and his monkey Screech was playing "Spot the Spy". Screech leaped at a man, Otto von Stürmat, who was sitting at the bar. Rocket tried to apologize but Otto refused his apology. When Rocket noticed a note on the floor, he tried to return it to Otto. Rocket's adventure begins from the moment he tried to returne [...]


    7. Young Indiana Jones meets "The Mummy" is the best way I can describe this fast-moving adventure. Ronald "Rocket" Robinson moves to Cairo when his father's job with the State Department transfers him to Egypt. He meets a gypsy girl named Nuri when he is exploring the city and they become friends. While his father is away in Alexandria, Rocket and Nuri are caught up in a plot to steal treasure from the Great Pyramids at Giza. Using Nuri's knowledge of the city, Rocket's skill with cyphers, and his [...]


    8. I understand that this book is supposed to be one for kids, but I could not finish it, finally giving up around page 90 (of 240). The art style is pretty crude, and the action simplistic. While this may all be fine for kids, a lot of the action just felt like padding, whether it's characters driving, walking, or running from place to place.On the plus side, I did appreciate the book's efforts to incorporate educational elements into the story, such as Rocket learning interesting Egyptian facts. [...]


    9. Adventure, intrigue, and not a bit of Egyptology -- what more could a kid ask for? On a train to Cairo. Rocket Robinson encounters a suspicious man with an unlikely note. The note is the first clue on a dangerous journey that will have Rocket evading crocodiles, booby traps, and one impervious giant named Khan -- all to be the first to reach the untold treasures of Pharoah Khufu. There are even a monkey and a street-smart Gypsy as sidekicks and a villain with an eye-patch -- along with a good de [...]


    10. This was adorable. The one thing that made me uncomfortable was the use of the word "gypsy," which is a racial slur. However, the character and her people were treated with great respect and I think their culture (in 1930s Egypt) was correctly shown. Rocket's father is in the US State Dept and he and Rocket travel the world. On the train to Cairo, while Rocket is bored and nervous about living in yet another new place, Rocket stumbles upon a mystery. He and Muri crack codes, and learn about anci [...]


    11. Rocket Robinson and his pet monkey, Screech, have been relocated to Cairo due to his dad's job. On the train ride there, Rocket and Screech come across a mysterious coded note. As Rocket is only 12, adults don't want to believe him. Luckily, he meets a native girl, Nuri, who assists him in his investigations into the note, but Otto von Sturn wants the note back at any cost.While this graphic novel/comic is geared to a younger audience, it can be enjoyed by adults as well.The illustrations are fu [...]


    12. I read this as an eARC from NetGalley. This children's graphic historical novel is set in Cairo in 1933 and brings together a young American boy, Rocket Robinson with a young gypsy girl, Nuri, and sends them on an adventure, being chased by and then chasing after villains who are after a pharaoh's buried treasure. Mix in the colorful, multicultural Cairo of that era, puzzles and ciphers, tunnels, historic landmarks and tombs, secrets, adventure and danger and you have a very enjoyable tale. High [...]


    13. Kids will enjoy this graphic novel. It has your typical bad guy with his bumbling henchmen; adults, who could help, but don't believe the "wild stories" about being kidnapped and the pharaoh's treasure; puzzles to solve; dangerous dilemmas and plenty of Egyptology. Rocket Robinson is in the title, but his gypsy friend, Nuri, is just as prominent a character in the story. The illustrations are eye catching and bring Egypt alive. Hieroglyphics, underground tunnels, crocodiles and explosions; adven [...]


    14. I'm not used to reading graphic novels but I liked this one. It was exciting and kept my interest. I also love any stories about ancient Egyptian archeology. The artwork was consistent and very expressive. The story reminiscent of Indiana Jones but for kids. The only problem I had was a bit of a disappointing conclusion to the problem. SPOILERS:I'm sad that the "find" was destroyed and that no one else knows they found it.


    15. A pint-sized Indiana Jones finds a message written in hieroglyphs that sets him off on a grand adventure through the streets of Cairo. Accompanied by a young gypsy girl who befriends and helps him and of course his trusty pet monkey, Rocket is in search of a pharaoh's treasure and racing against the evil Otto von Stürm. Fast paced, fun adventure with a few extra tidbits (such as code-breaking) thrown in.


    16. This book is awesome. Ronald (Rocket) Robinson travels a lot because of his dad's job. when they go to Cairo, Rocket thinks it will be awful. But soon, he and his pet monkey, Screech, meet a mysterious figure on a train , a kind, clever gypsy girl named Nuri steals his backpack and becomes his friend, and they try to stop an evil plot to break into the great pyramid. This book is an extremely fun adventure.


    17. "Rocket" Robinson and his gypsy friend Nuri manage to thwart Otto von Sturm and his gang of thieves from looting Pharaoh Khufu's toomb more by accident and bungling by the thieves then on purpose. However, the duo manage to take the reader on an adventure through Cairo in the 1920's with plenty of daring-do and cliff-hangers to enjoy. I will be looking forward to the next installment (and so will my son).


    18. A fun, action-packed graphic novel that hearkens back to those adventure serials of the '30s. The tween leads are plucky and entertaining and the story is thick with intrigue, thrills, and humor. Reminiscent in all the right ways of Hergé’s TinTin, without feeling derivative. A great, all-ages read that leaves you wanting a follow-up…and luckily there’s a second book!


    19. Rocket Robinson and his pet monkey, Screech have been relocated to Cairo due to his dads job. On the train ride there, Rocket and Screech come across a mysterious coded note. As Rocket is only 12, adults don't want to believe in him. Luckily he meets a native girl who assists him in his investigations into the note, but Otto von Sturn wants the note back at any cost.


    20. I got this copy from NetGalley in exchange for a review.O'Neill does a great job recreating the feel of the old adventure comics. In fact it's just as obvious, stilted, and melodramatic as Tin-Tin.(Can you tell it's not my favorite genre?)The art was okay. Sorry I couldn't finish it. I'm sure fans of the old-timey mystery graphic novels will eat this up.


    21. This was a fun, fast adventure that I really enjoyed reading. The comparisons between Tintin and Young Indiana Jones are pretty spot on. There were a few plotholes in the book where Rocket and Nuri too easily get out of trouble, but those are easy to overlook since it's not exactly supposed to be true-to-life :)


    22. Most excellent graphic novel adventure of a boy and a girl looking for treasure from ancient Egypt - while trying to foil a bad guy. Full of action, satisfying ending. Certainly not a super fast read, but MCs are 12 so it's appropriate for MS students. On order for my library - I think a lot of my students will like this book.


    23. This is a great graphic novel for kids - full of adventure, and it'll whet their appetite to learn more about Egypt, the Pharaohs and the Great Pyramids. And you can't help loving Rocket's pet monkey, who always manages to get them out of the trickiest scrapes. For me, it was a bit predictable, but I would have eaten it up at a younger age, for sure!


    24. i really love this book and i think the author thought up a really good storyso the illustrations are beautiful.


    25. 12/30/13 3.5 stars. Great family-friendly adventure, in the vein of TinTin. Review tk.2/17/14 iwantmytwodollars/2014


    26. Kids who like graphic novels will enjoy this book about an American boy in Cairo who befriends a gypsy girl and looks for a treasure.


    27. Beautifully illustrated and solidly told by new comer Sean O'Neill. Buy it for the kids for the holidays. Great bed time storytelling!


    28. Rocket Robinson is loads of fun! It was a pleasure to meet O'Neill at SPX 2016 and I look forward to reading more of his work.
