Why not take a trip through Ancient Egypt with selections from our San José Public Library catalog? We have many books and dvds for children and adults. Read all about Cleopatra and Nefertiti, and discover the treasures of King Tut's tomb. Watch the wonders of the Nile unfold before your eyes with the Dvd Mystery of the Nile. Learn how and why the ancient Egyptians would mummify their dead. Learn how to write your name in hieroglyphs.
View the treasures inside and wander through the beautiful gardens.
The Red Pyramid is the first book in The Kane Chronicles by Rick Riordan, who wrote the Percy Jackson series. Volume one introduces us to 14 year-old Carter Kane, his 12 year-old sister, Sadie and a cast of characters from an ancient land.
The story begins with a Christmas day visit to the British Museum and takes you on a magical journey to Paris, Ancient Egypt and yes, even Graceland!
I really enjoyed this book and it looks like this series will be just as enjoyable as the Percy Jackson series.
