About the Author:

Gillian Chapman, author of Crafts from the Past: the Aztecs, and Crafts from the Past: the Egyptians, as well as Art from Sand & Earth (Raintree/Steck Vaughn) lives in England.

From School Library Journal:

Grade 4-8?Brief snippets of text make for superficial coverage of the Egyptian and Aztec empires, but crafts?not history?are the focus of this series, and sufficient information is given to put the crafts into a cultural context. The appealing, inventive projects include "Jade Mosaics," "Featherwork," "Woven Textiles," and "Chacmool Statues" (The Aztecs); and "Nest of Mummies," "Scarab Seals," "Board Games," and "Canopic Jars" (The Egyptians). The colorful crafts are attractive, often ambitious, and generally reflective of the culture. Instructions are rather sketchy, but the full-color diagrams and photographs of completed projects provide sufficient clarification. There are no pretensions to authenticity here. On the contrary, there is a rather jarring effort to make the items "useful" (e.g., a mosaic papier-mache serpent becomes a key holder, a cat mummy becomes a "purr-fect" money box), and the general instructions suggest that "All the projects make perfect presents." These volumes are hardly essential, but as supplementary material for hands-on learning, they should prove useful.?Marcia Hupp, Mamaroneck Public Library, NY
