    DescriptionFollowing on from his internationally bestselling book on Rome, master illustrator Stephen Biesty brings his magic touch to the subject of ancient Egypt. It is over 3200 years ago in ancient Egypt, in the reign of the great god-king Rameses II. And for 11-year-old Dedia, a great adventure is about to begin. Join Dedia as he accompanies his father - and a couple of troublesome relations - on a once-in-a-lifetime journey down the Nile. Among the splendours on the way, you will see...BL The hidden secrets of the Valley of the Kings BL Amun-Ra's magnificent temple at Karnak (Luxor) BL Preparation of a mummy and an Egyptian funeral BL The pyramids and Sphinx of Giza BL The ancient Step Pyramid at Saqqara BL Rameses's spectacular palace at Piramesse

    Review quote
    Stephen Biesty has perfected the art of cross-section, exploiting it to the limit so as to give maximum information without any sense of overload Julia Eccleshare, The Guardian There is plenty of material here for work on the Nile, its surrounding landscape and the part the river played in the life of ancient Egypt, though inevitably it's likely to be the double-page spread on the construction of the pyramids that will appeal most immediately to young readers. This is an intriguing way into history Kate Agnew, The Guardian Stephen Biesty's Egypt is endlessly fascinating and entertaining, as well as being an authoritative source of information on a culture children love to study. The Times A magnificent volume about many children's favourite historical period... a book to browse over for hours The Northern Echo
