"At the heart of this imaginative tour of the afterworld of
Egyptian mythology is the judgment of the dead . . . Anubis serves
as a wickedly funny tour guide. This book is packed with
information . . . Anubis's narration, plus the incredible wealth of
interesting detail, could make this book a hit in any library."
-School Library Journal
" . . . an informative and unusually lively look at the Egyptian way of death." -Kirkus Reviews
