Press Reviews

Within its 73 pages this book, written in a tongue in cheek, irreverent style that would appeal to KS2 readers, manages not only to impart far more facts about the life and role of the Pharaoh than would be normally found in a book for this age group but also includes plenty of information about clothing, adornment, everyday life and religion; with plenty of suitably gory descriptions of mummification and the journey to the Afterlife...Your class will be queuing up to read this one!
