This new hardback about Egyptian mythology and history is superb. Witty and informative, it is also child-friendly. And the full colour illustrations are wonderful. Perfect for any kid 7+ who loves ancient history.

With vibrant spreads and short, accessible bursts of text, this is the perfect book for lower KS2 Ancient Egyptian topics. Packed with both adventure and information, it will encourage children to think about, discuss and find out more about the life, culture and beliefs of this period.

We like the way the stories have been simplified without losing the sense of other-world mysticism; confident readers from Year 3 upwards would find this a great way of picking up these tales for the first time. Readers familiar with Ancient Egypt will enjoy the humour and there’s a good dash of obscure fact to add to their knowledge.

I wrote here about the extraordinary sources of some of the tales in the book.
