Review quote

Several stories from ancient Egypt are exuberantly retold in this picture book for older readers...Williams infuses her retellings with a great deal of humor, and nearly every page includes an array of subtle jokes that are delightfully extended in her entertaining, often cheeky illustrations, which blend two distinct but compatible styles, those of comic books and Egyptian tomb paintings.--Booklistshow more
