Reviews

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.
--Booklist
Expressive postures, smiling faces, and playful interactions among [the gods and pharaohs] keep readers scouring the pages for every little joke.
--School Library Journal

A sure-footed and mischievous vision of these seminal stories.
