I really liked the format that they wrote this in. Also the pop-outs were cool, like the layers of a mummies casket.

This book was awesome! It had all these interactive pop-outs that really showed me a lot about Egyptian mythology. One thing I found amazing was that it also had the early Egyptian board game: Senet.
