Malek begins this little volume with a chronology of Egyptian history and includes sections on using hieroglyphs as well as on the monuments where they have been found. This is a handy book packed with information likely to appeal to kids and adults alike. The main principles of hieroglyphic writing and its use are explained. The most frequently occurring hieroglyphs are listed, and simple exercises are included for practice. An entertaining and informative book.
