2 of 2 people found the following review helpful By BeatleBangs1964 TOP 1000 REVIEWERVINE VOICE on November 18, 2009
Format: Paperback
This beautifully illustrated book shows how an Egyptian princess lived during the days of the Pharaohs. The introduction is brilliant and funny; it is written like a job description for someone seeking a position in the Royal household as an Egyptian princess.

Family life including polygamy among the pharaohs is shown; clothing; jewelry; food; music; bartering system; entertainment; Gods and Goddesses; furniture and health care as well as health concerns and pets are beautifully illustrated. Readers come away with a rich knowledge about life among royalty in Egypt. This book is as delightfully rich and fertile in ideas and information as the Nile. Readers will come away with a deeper appreciation of life during the time of the pharaohs and will undoubtedly view this book as a king's (or pharaoh's) treasure.

This is a book for little kids. It's colorful (the females weren't usually painted as brown), and kind of mixes the traditions of different dynasties. It shows what life might be like for an ancient Egyptian Princess.

Our daughter does not enjoy the traditional fairy princess story / theme, preferring science and adventure. FYI - While this is the only book that involves a female main character, all of the books in the series give excellent detail and engage the reader. We now own the entire set and have purchased same for school library.

I bought this book b'c it was on the second grade summer reading list of one of the top elementary boarding school in New England. There is a TON of information in this book -- maybe too much in such limited space. The pictures are detailed as well.
