From artist and Egypt specialist Tamara Bower comes her third, gorgeous book about Ancient Egypt. Using the classic style of Egyptian art, the book is painstakingly accurate in facts and illustrative style. Artifacts, funerary customs, kid-loving gory details of the mummification process, hieroglyphics, and details of life in ancient Egypt are told through the eyes of Ipy whose father is embalmer to the King. Yuya, father of the Queen, has died and Ipy must help his father in the mummification process.
