This book is by far the best book I've ever read. The myths in this book are exciting and carefully written. But the stories are not the only thing that is spectactular. The pictures and just amazing! They are both balck and white and colored. But both just blow your mind away. To complete the book, in the back is a little leeson on how to write in heiroglyphics. All in all, this book can be a great source to study on or just and good night time story to wonder about.

This is clearly the best book I've ever read before. The myths included in the book are awsome and are my now favorite myths. The pictures in it are incredilbe and go very well with the story.

I would recomend this book to anyone who loves Egyptian history as much as I do. I am 12 years old and I am often made fun of for my love of Egypt. And one day I want to be an Egyptologist. 'The doomed prince' is one of my personal favorites from this book.

I loved this book and reccomend this title to anyone who loves Egyptian History. I am 12 and the kids in school call me a GEEK. I am only chasing my dream of becoming an Egyptologist. To say about the book it had exciting stories and tales. It is discriptive about the gods and to get to the historical side it included Pharaohs such as Rameses and Thutmose. May I reccomend the stories about the gods and 'The Siege of Joppa'. If you like the subject it will quickly become your favorite book. Good reading Enjoy.
