by Donna Jo Napoli
"Donna Jo Napoli has a gift for wading into a subject and turning research into storytelling thatÕs sure to engage children. Narrator Christina Moore makes NapoliÕs accounts of ancient Egyptian myths even more accessible and enjoyable with her conversational tone and emphasis on emotions. Connection is crucial to the success of this broad and encompassing view of Egyptian mythology, and audio achieves it well. The varying tones of the author and narrator flow smoothly as the stories of 17 Egyptian gods and goddesses dramatize the culture of the ancient Egyptian world. The lyrical descriptions of this world combined with contemporary informal language engage listeners and transport them back to earlier times. S.W. © AudioFile 2014, Portland, Maine"
