Gr 8 Up-This series provides a wealth of information on the ancient Egyptians, focusing on the infamous curse of King Tut, the pyramids of Giza, pharaohs, mummification and burial rites, and daily life. Even though this is oft-covered ground, these books stand out for their abundant material and the appealing presentations. The content is extensive, but it is written in a conversational style that will pull in report writers and browsers alike. The main text is interspersed with fact boxes providing additional intriguing tidbits ("The Great Pyramid of Khufu at Giza weighs an estimated 6 million tons."), interesting photographs, and noteworthy artwork and reproductions. These are solid purchases, even for libraries with Egyptian collections of a good size. α(c) Copyright 2011. Library Journals LLC, a wholly owned subsidiary of Media Source, Inc.
