Synopsis: A vibrant retelling of the ancient Egyptian story of the early days of men and gods on Earth.

From School Library Journal: Grade 3-5?The glowing Benu Bird arises from the timeless waters of the Nun, a "sleeping ocean...surrounded by Chaos," starting time and chasing away darkness. Another being, Atum, emerges, and from his breath two children are born: Shu, "life," and Tefnut, "order." Land is created, mountains rise up, rivers and lakes form, and Shu and Tefnut give birth to Geb, the Earth, and Nut, the sky. Geb and Nut's first child is the sun, Re, followed by the moon, stars, and planets. On one of the mountains, Atum and his offspring build the city of Heliopolis, and he makes many gods and goddesses to thwart Chaos. From his tears, he creates humans to take care of these gods and animals and plants by calling out their names. In time, he meets with the son of the Benu Bird, bringing the story full circle and emphasizing the bird's importance as an eternal protector of the light. Greger has provided an excellent source note and includes information about pronunciation of names. Her beautifully luminous watercolors make use of aspects of ancient Egyptian temple art without appearing stiff. The vibrant pages depict abstract concepts successfully through stylized design and recurring graphic elements, such as waves of water or light rays. An entertaining addition to the much-loved topic of ancient Egyptian mythology.?Jennifer Fleming, Boston Public Library
