Children's LiteratureWhen the Egyptians attack the Rebu, the Rebu are slowly exhausted and sent to Egypt to be servants and slaves. Prince Amuba and his friend Jethro become companions for Chebron and Mysa, the son and daughter of the high priest of the temple of Osiris. Will Amuba and Jethro ever return to their homeland? First published in 1888, this book reflects the language and vocabulary of the time. In an engaging manner, the book discusses ancient issues in religion. The female characters tend to be weak but very important. Although the first half of the book lays the foundation for the story, the real excitement and adventure do not begin until the middle. This book is appropriate for middle school and high school students and for older elementary-aged children with advanced reading skills. 2002 (orig. 1888), Dover Publications, Ages 10 up.
