Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Uma Krishnaswami
Pace, who wrote the well-crafted Wrapped for Eternity that focused on Egyptian mummies, here presents the history of and accumulated knowledge about the pyramids. From Imhotep and Zoser's pyramid, to Napoleon's battle with the Mamelukes, this is a wide-ranging book in scope and content. Slightly dated (e.g. Pace uses the older Anglicized name "Cheops" rather than the contemporary "Khufu," and her descriptions of battles are very definitely from the white invader's point of view) this is still a useful resource for teachers and librarians, and an interesting read for the curious middle grader. Comparative information is provided as well on the pyramids of the Americas. Includes chronology, map, index, and bibliography.
