You Wouldn't Want To Be A Pyramid Builder!

Jacqueline Morley

£6.99

As a pyramid-builder in ancient Egypt, you have a hard life ahead of you: back-breaking labour, dangerous conditions and run-ins with tax inspectors just itching to give you a beating...

The humorous cartoon-style illustrations and the narrative approach encourage readers to get emotionally involved with the characters, aiding the understanding of everyday life and religion in Ancient Egypt and the building techniques used for such monumental structures. Informative captions, a timeline, a map, a comprehensive glossary and an index make this title an ideal and fun introduction to the conventions of non-fiction texts.
