These stories include the great myths - of Amen-Ra, who created all the creatures in the world; of Isis, seaching the waters for her dead husband Osiris; of the Bennu Bird and the Book of Thoth. But there are also tales told for pleasure about magic, treasure and adventure - even the first ever Cinderella story.

Not an enjoyable book. (especially when you are FORCED to read it for Summer Reading)
It explains all aspects of the Egyptian World
If someone says: 'It explains all aspects of the Egyptian World' it means that this person doesn't understand what they are talking about. Even bigger and more comprehensive books on Egypt don't claim to explain all the aspects. In fact, Egyptologists acknowledge that they themselves are barely touching the tip of the iceberg.
