Description

Publisher Marketing: The new "National Geographic Treasury of Egyptian Mythology" is a stunning tableau of Egyptian myths, including those of pharaohs, queens, the boisterous Sun God Ra, and legendary creatures like the Sphinx. The lyrical storytelling of award-winning author Donna Jo Napoli dramatizes the timeless tales of ancient Egypt in the year when Angelina Jolie will make Cleopatra a multimedia star. And just like the popular "National Geographic Treasury of Greek Mythology," the stories in this book will be beautifully illustrated to bring ancient characters vividly to life. The stories are embellished with sidebars that provide historical, cultural, and geographic context and a mapping feature that adds to the fun and fascination. Resource notes and ample back matter direct readers to discover more about ancient Egypt. With its attractive design and beautiful narrative, this accessible treasury stands out from all other mythology titles in the marketplace.

Professional reviews

"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"
