Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

Grade 3-5 Each of these picture books begins with a modern child who travels back in time to learn a few facts about an ancient culture. Three pages of historical background follow the stories. In Nefertari, Anna follows a cat into the tomb of an Egyptian princess who tells the girl about some of the Egyptian gods and goddesses. In Vulca, Robbie and his dog meet an ancient Etruscan near the Necropolis. The format of the stories and the colorful cartoon illustrations will appeal to younger children than those for whom the cultural and historic backgrounds are intended. Information is slight, and the narratives are mildly amusing, though somewhat stilted. Reluctant readers may be drawn to them, but for a more informative and creative approach, try Scott Steedman's The Egyptian News (Candlewick, 1997). Cynthia M. Sturgis, Ledding Library, Milwaukee, OR

From Kirkus Reviews

In the Journey Through Time series, a small tourist tiptoes into an ancient Egyptian tomb and meets its guest of honor. Anna at first finds only wall paintings in the shadowy chambersbut her shouts bring the smiling figures to life, with Nefertari herself, wife of Rameses II, stepping down to name the painted gods and translate some of the hieroglyphics. Even with an added spread of basic facts about ancient Egypt, the historical information is as skimpy as the plotline, and readers may be disappointed that Nefertari has so little to say about her life or times. Still, the figures and symbols in Angeletti's clean-lined cartoons are based on real tomb paintings, and glow with light and color. (Picture book. 7-9) -- Copyright ©1999, Kirkus Associates, LP.
