Blast from the Past: Al’3az Takhtakh wal Mo’3amroon Elkhamsa :)

As i was waking in the Book Exhibition my eyes fell upon these little novels and i was instantly a 13 years old kid drooling over them. If you are a chicken nugget who grew up in the 90’s chances are you never heard of Takhtakh before. If however you grew up in the 70’s and 80’s there is NO WAY ON EARTH that you do not remember Takhtakh wal mo’3amroon el khamsa… 3a6ef o ikhtah il de3la looza, Mo7eb o his sister Noosa, and Zengar Takhtakh’s dog! I used to love those novels and sought them all over Q8! That particular one pictured “9awareeh El Lail” is one of my favorites ❤

I alwayas wanted to solve mysteries and go hunting for clues like they did. El shaweesh 3a6iya! How can i forget el shaweesh 3a6iya who hated their guts!? ooh the days when my quality time meant being sprawled on my bed with a good Lo’3z and a falafel sandwich with a cocktail juice in hand… ahhh the memories ❤ Where did those days go?

and where did my vast collection of Al’3az go? I think my mother threw them all away after i had gotten married :`( I spent years collecting them… i almost had all the collection… they are very old… and now they are gone!

Do you remember Takhtakh wal mo’3amroon elkhamsa?

      I know it’s in the egyptian corner but i am not really sure which number and name… sorry about that dear… maybe you can check where by using their computer searchers and have them pinpoint it for you?
