|Isabel & Imogen Greenberg|
|Pages/Publication Date:||32 / 2016|
Graphic novelist and comics illustrator Isabel Greenberg here teams up with her sister Imogen to present an irreverently funny yet detail-packed illustrated history of ancient Egypt. Readers 8 to 12 can find out what life was like along the River Nile thousands of years ago, as an Egyptian guide named Ahmes and a modern archaeologist introduce such topics as the major eras of Egypt's history, their gods and mythology, the structure of Egyptian society and aspects of their culture, mummies and pyramids, hieroglyphs, and pharaohs—with snippy commentary from several of them on how great they were. The book also includes a foldout map nearly 15 inches wide, with a timeline on the reverse.
