These stories include the great myths - of Amen-Ra, who created all the creatures in the world; of Isis, seaching the waters for her dead husband Osiris; of the Bennu Bird and the Book of Thoth. But there are also tales told for pleasure about magic, treasure and adventure - even the first ever Cinderella story.

Written for children (over 9 years old) and young adults, these stories of the Ancient Egyptians include gods such as Amen-Ra and Osiris, and some of the Egyptian rulers. Interesting to compare with tales from ancient Greece, Rome or Troy.

It explains all aspects of the Egyptian World

If someone says: 'It explains all aspects of the Egyptian World' it means that this person doesn't understand what they are talking about. Even bigger and more comprehensive books on Egypt don't claim to explain all the aspects. In fact, Egyptologists acknowledge that they themselves are barely touching the tip of the iceberg.
