Discovering the Ancient Egyptians
By Federica Magrin (Text), Laura Brenlla (Illustrator)
Come take a walk by the Nile and discover the world of Pharaohs, solve the riddles of the Sphinx, play hide-and-seek among the great pyramids of Giza, and listen to the legends of Egyptian gods and goddesses! Along with lots of detail on everything from how mummies were made to the meaning of hieroglyphics, this introduction to ancient Egypt features detachable figures with pedestals that actually stand.
