Draw Like an Egyptian
|Author:||Jay Wright; Joe Gamble|
Take a journey down the Nile to the Delta and discover the rites, rituals, art, and culture of the Ancient Egyptians. Jackal-headed Anubis; Osiris, ruler of the underworld; and his wife, Isis, goddess of magic, are brought to life in Joe Gamble's warm, sketchy style. Activities include designing a pharaoh's headdress, making up your own gods, writing your name in hieroglyphics, and discovering the treasures of Tutankhamun's tomb, alongside plenty of coloring in. A warm, humorous illustration and text style will get young readers engaged with the fascinating historical rituals and traditions of one of the world's greatest civilizations.
