About the Author:

Nancy Ohlin is the author of the YA novels Always, Forever and Beauty as well as the early chapter book series Greetings from Somewhere under the pseudonym Harper Paris. She lives in Ithaca, NY with her husband, their two kids, two cats, a bunny, and assorted animals who happen to show up at their door. Visit her online at nancyohlin.com.

Adam Larkum is a freelance illustrator based in the United Kingdom. In addition to his illustration work, he also works in animation and develops characters for television.

From School Library Journal:

Gr 2–4—A survey of Aancient Egyptian history, culture, and daily life. This pocket-size book discusses the development of Egyptian society, explaining in broad, accessible terms the various transformations in its history. The text goes beyond the pyramids and mummies, discussing Egypt's geography, climate, mythology, and medical advances. Ohlin describes in detail everyday necessities such as travel and the three-season agricultural year. Readers also learn about the process of preparing mud bricks and the option of going to the market. Especially helpful is the clarification concerning the oft-confused distinction between Upper and Lower Egypt. Shaded boxes contain information on the gods, the calendar, and other facets of ancient Egyptian life. Important pharaohs, such as Hatshepsut, Akhenaton, and Ramses II, are covered, as are significant cultural achievements, including the Sphinx and the Great Pyramid of Giza. Larkum's simple, stylized illustrations depict clothing, household tools, and everyday scenes. These black-and-white line drawings capture fluid motion. The visuals and text share space evenly on the page, and illustrations range from quarter-page artifact details to full-page maps. While lacking the color of other titles, such as Miles Harvey's Look What Came from Egypt (Franklin Watts, 1998), this is an accessible, handy, and interesting work. VERDICT Fun, informative, and digestible nonfiction.—Jeffrey Meyer, Mt. Pleasant Public. Library, IA
