Kepi is a young girl in ancient Egypt, content to stay home with her family, helping her father who was wounded in the construction of a pyramid for the cruel pharaoh Khufu. But that was before she and her pet baboon, Babu, were kidnapped and held captive on a boat bound for the capital city, Ineb Hedj. And when Kepi and Babu are separated, she knows she has only one choice: to make her way to the capital on her own, rescue Babu, and find a way to appeal to the pharaoh. The pharaoh is rich and powerful, but Kepi has her own powers deep inside of her--ones she herself doesn't even know about yet. Donna Jo Napoli, acclimated author of "Zel" and "Beast," revisits the fabled origin of fairies in this strikingly original and affecting story of friendship.
