The kids from The Egypt Game are back. What game will they play next? The answer is Gypsies. While April plunges in with her usual enthusiasm, the more Melanie learns, the more something seems to be holding her back. But it's Toby who adds a really new wrinkle when he announces that he himself is a bona fide Gypsy. Plus he can get them some of his grandmother's things to use as real Gypsy props for the new game. What could be more thrilling? Then Toby suddenly and mysteriously disappears, and the kids discover that living as real-life Gypsies may not be as much fun as they thought. How will they find Toby and rescue him from the very real problems that are haunting his life?

But there it was, all his worldly goods, taking up no more than a couple of inches at the bottom of the beat-up old backpack. But now, of course, thanks to the rest of the Gypsies, there was also quite a bit of food.

Zilpha Keatley Snyder is one of the great writers. I love all her books, and now I'm introducing my grandchildren to her stories. Snyder might as well have called it The Toby Mystery because pretty much anything having to do with Gypsies or any kind of game vanishes after the second chapter, replaced with a pretty sorry excuse for a "kid disappears" plot. The even more sad thing about it is plots like this usually have a lot of room for excitement and mystery, but this one is pretty much just our main group moping around and complaining.

Zilpha Keatley Snyder (May 11, 1927 – October 8, 2014) was an American author of books for children and young adults. Three of Snyder's works were named Newbery Honor books: The Egypt Game, The Headless Cupid and The Witches of Worm. She was most famous for writing adventure stories and fantasies. Snyder was born in Lemoore, California, and spent all but brief periods of her life in Northern California.

The book is a lot about Toby, who IS a really cool character. The characters don't play The Gypsy Game really, but what is going on is probably much more interesting. This book starts exactly after where the Egypt Game ends. I could not put down this book.

This book was very different from the first, but still very good. It was more about real life situations and problems and less about a game, which was a little disappointing but good for figuring out who the characters really were and seeing the development and the interactions between them. Would I read more by this author? Yes. Would I recommend this to others? Yes.

I would consider it a 10-15 age range book. Very good, kind of creepy. If you are a Harry Potter fan you will love this!

You should totally read this book but read the Egypt game first both great books hope you enjoy them too

I chose 4 stars because the book kind of ended without ending all the way. Other than that I really liked the book.

The Egypt Game is one of my favorites, so of course I was excited when I learned about The Gypsy Game. Snyder might as well have called it The Toby Mystery because pretty much anything having to do with Gypsies or any kind of game vanishes after the second chapter, replaced with a pretty sorry excuse for a "kid disappears" plot. The even more sad thing about it is plots like this usually have a lot of room for excitement and mystery, but this one is pretty much just our main group moping around and complaining. Even Toby, who believes he's on the run for his life, pretty much just sits around whining about how hungry and tired he is. Things like that are fine in small doses, and can even help build tension if done correctly, but this goes far beyond trying to build a darker mood and just makes the book dull. Very, very dull. And annoying. I started losing my enthusiasm at about chapter ten, and now I'm just reading to get it done. Thankfully, I'm on chapter twenty-seven out of thirty, so I'm almost there. I don't really know what Snyder was trying to go for with this one, but it's clear she should have just left the Egypt gang where they were, instead of dragging them through whatever this is supposed to be. Do yourselves a favor and just read The Egypt Game or The Headless Cupid, both of which do a much better job of balancing mystery and imagination with real life and aren't nearly so depressing. Actually, this book isn't even depressing, it's just way too boring for that.
I thought the first book, the Egypt Game, was kind of corny in plot but had very good character development. As a sequel, the Gypsy Game starts out very confusing because the plot is so different from the first book. But I thought it was a nice book on its own. It takes a while to figure out what's going on, but I think it introduces a lot of issues that are thought-provoking and resonate a lot with my real world experiences. I'm a grown-up, though, so for a kid it's a pretty heavy book. I don't know why it's targeted towards little kids actually. It seems like from the reviews, that they don't really understand it or necessarily get a lot out of it. If the kid doesn't like this one, maybe try reading it again in 10 years and see how your perspective changes. I wondered how the subject matter of gypsies would be handled in a politically correct way, after the first book seemed decidedly un-PC, and if anything the author bends over backwards to make sure that it is.
