" This book really brings about the idea of team work to children. Each of the characters contributed something to the building of the pyramids and without the work of one the pyramids would not have been complete. The book contains a large amount of historical information at the end. I think this book could easily be read to younger children while the older children may enjoy the more historical information. *Book from text " said.

" Although I found the illustrations a bit bizarre, the book overall was great - and enjoyed by my fourth grade students. The book introduces the various workers involved in the building of the pyramids with each one claiming full responsibility for the pyramids. The names were a bit hard to pronounce and read aloud to the students. At the end of the book, there are several pages with informative paragraphs and photographs relating to the pyramids. Index included. " said.

"Any book that introduces ancient civilizations to a young audience often catches my interest, but very few capture an attentive audience. Meredith Hooper successfully gathers an interesting cast of characters and introduces the reader to all the many individuals who would have been involved in building a pyramid. She communicates their roles in a brief yet complete manner. The unique illustrative style of Robin Heighway-Bury fleshed out the characters and further demonstrated their contributions to the design and construction of the pyramid of King Senwosret.

The real surprise was the additional pages after the story that contained text, images and maps of the actual pyramid and what is known about it today. This book successfully introduces ancient history and archaeology to a young reader, and although it is typically regarded as appropriate to a Grade 3-8 level, it captured my 5-year old's imagination. The photographs of the current decayed pyramid and the problems faced by archaeologists in accessing it (the burial chamber level is flooded) all make the story portion that much more interesting. The maps of the pyramids aid in exploration and lead to more questions and discussions. Overall a real enjoyable read that feeds the imagination (and the brain!) of readers at all levels.
