Publisher's Description

Emerging on the fertile banks of the Nile River over five thousand years ago, ancient Egypt was a place of mummies and pharaohs, pyramids and temples--a place that sparks the imagination. Young artists can dive into the underworld with Anubis, jackal god of the dead; creep past a sentinel sphinx with the body of a lion and the head of a falcon; bow down to the beautiful Queen Nefertiti; or give praise to the murdered god Osiris, all while learning to draw the symbols of the mysterious and ancient civilization of Egypt.

Step-by-step instructions help young artists create their own representations of this incredible culture, and annotations throughout the book provide a glimpse into the history and mythology of ancient Egypt. Bonus steps provide ways to customize drawings with historically accurate symbols and other details.

    I can't imagine a more enjoyable way to study Ancient Egypt. Information on Egypt is scant, but there is enough there to make the drawings interesting even if Ancient Egypt isn't the main topic. The step-by-step instructions are clear and well done, making it possible for even the most artistically-challenged among us to be comfortable trying to tackle a sphinx, Isis, Nefertiti or even King Tut himself. I'd estimate the age range at 8+, but even a 6 year-old who draws well and has an interest could enjoy this wonderful book. Two possible improvements top the book would be 1) permission to reproduce pages so more than one child could draw at a time, and 2) a format that lies open more easily. However, these problems are minimal considering the educational value we received from including this in our study of Ancient Egypt.
