" The information and illustrations presented are great. However, it can get a little boring to read in one sitting. I will wait to read this with my kids when they are in the 8-12 year range - and do so in several readings. " said.

" LOVED this book! ( thanx Jean!) it was a quick read but it gave its info in an interesting way and the simple and highly detailed artwork won me over. Can you find the little priest giving prayers next to the capstone? A must for any Egypt lover! " said.

" Black and white drawings illustrate this readable, informative description of the building of the Egyptian pyramids. Probably won't appeal to a wide audience, but readers with an interest in Egypt, mummies, or archetecture will find it fascinating. " said.

" Classic black and white depiction of how a pyramid was built. If you ever wondered how they did that ... here are the tools and techniques in super-detail!Now I want to go find McAuley's Cathedral. " said.

" Another interesting edition. I learned that the ancient Egyptians thought (accurately, actually) that being dead lasts a lot longer than being alive so they built their homes out of mud and their tombs out of stone. " said.

" I didn't love this one as much as Castle. The Spouse is interested in Egyptology, so I found myself wondering how much of it is still true, thirty years after it was published. " said.

" David Macaulay does an amazing job depicting the life of a pyramid builder. Readers can see the progress of building a pyramid. I love how they show and go through what every tool would be and how it would be used. The illustrations are really well done. They are black and white, simply sketched but they are detailed and well thought out, depicting the life of a pyramid builder. " said.
