R- 1? maybe
An Amelia Peabody book (#3)
I love Elizabeth Peters.
I needed a light cozy mystery the other day and this fit the bill perfectly.
In this volume, the Emersons take their son Ramses (age 6? it never really says) to Egypt with them. That child can get into more mischief than Denis the Menace! It's hilarious.
Another great mystery. You don't have to read these in order, necessarily, but you might want to. It never hurts. :) Start with Crocodile on the Sandbank.
