Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature
Unfold the fan and a myriad of information about ancient Egypt awaits the reader. "Fandex" field guides are cleverly packaged and the hands-on-format is appealing to children. Fifty die cut cards are fastened to unfold, revealing wonderful photographs and concise information. Egypt continues to entice, fascinate, and baffle researchers. What is the reason for the angle of the Bent Pyramid? Why is the Great Sphinx shrouded in mystery? Who was the female pharaoh whose name was obliterated from the walls of her tomb and temples? These and many other perplexing puzzles and facts are included in a source that is loaded with information, yet will fit in the palm of a hand. Learn about the pharaohs, gods and goddesses, rituals, and facts about daily life. Egyptians so loved animals that when one died, mourners shaved eyebrows in respect. Amulets such as the ankh were buried with the dead to ward off evil spirits. An index makes research easy and learning becomes fun when it is literally at one's fingertips! 2000, Workman Publishing, $9.95. Ages 8 up. Reviewer: Laura Hummel
