About the Author:

Tom Streissguth lives in Florida and works as a writer and editor. He has written more than twenty-five non-fiction books for young people, including biographies and books on history and geography. His volumes in the Biography® series include Legends of Dracula, Jesse Owens, Queen Cleopatra, Jack London, and Edgar Allan Poe. Mr. Streissguth has also written several Visual Geography Series® titles including Argentina in Pictures, Costa Rica in Pictures, and Brazil in Pictures as well as scripts for television.

From Library Journal:

Grade 2-4-A culture as rich and complex as Egypt's cannot be surveyed and summarized easily, but with vibrant color photographs and easy-to-follow narrative, Streissguth manages to provide an informative snapshot. The book opens with a map clearly showing the desert area in contrast to the narrow strip of green along the Nile River where most of the country's 65 million people live. Family structure, city life in Cairo, celebrations, education, shopping, and pyramids and mummies are some of the topics covered in two-page chapters. Characteristics of the population are noted but not in great detail, e.g., the Nubians are described as living in the southernmost part of Egypt, but no mention is made of their dislocation by the construction of the Aswan Dam. Wordplay is frequently used as a hook to draw readers, e.g., the term fellah means male farmer, and the chapter on agriculture is titled "Good Fellahs." The photographs are identical to those in Egypt (Carolrhoda, 1999) in the "A Ticket To" series by the same author. The flag is pictured, but its symbolism is defined differently in Alasdair Tenquist's Egypt (RSVP, 1995). While the statistics in Karen Jacobsen's Egypt (Children's, 1990; o.p.) are not as current, its organization provides a more satisfying glimpse into the culture. Consider Streissguth's title as a secondary purchase.
