Product description

Follow the exciting journey of Nakht as he sails down the Nile with his family, ready to start a new life in the great city of Memphis! It is clear that the god Khnum has blessed Nakht’s family with good luck when his father is offered an important job as a scribe in the bustling city. In his vividly illustrated journal, Nakht describes his adventures there: visiting the shipyards and craft workshops; watching funeral rites; learning how the land is farmed, how houses are built and how to fish and hunt. Most thrilling of all, he and his sister witness a tomb robbery in the pyramids, and end up meeting the King of Egypt! Told in text and striking artwork, and packed with fascinating insights into Egyptian life, this book includes substantial notes about Nakht’s world and how we know about it.

“Lively and appealing.” The Times

“A very enjoyable and informative book for all ages.”
