I love this book so much! It is brilliant, full of really funny cartoons and practical advice. Note, that this book is not "Talk Ancient Egyptian", which never as such existed anyway as it changed over time, but it teaches you how to use hieroglyphs.

A rather silly book for children, but well... that's what it was probably meant to be. But I didn't like that style very much and I somehow doubt that I would've liked its style, had I been a child and read this book. It underestimates its readers, I think. And I miss pronunciations for some of the words, as it's never really made clear how words should be pronounced. But it was quite short, so it wasn't really a waste of time or anything.
one of my favorite books as a child... fun read, good to learn something new!

Over six-and-a-half feet tall, with a bushy beard,Philip Ardagh is not only very big but also very hairy. He is the author of the Eddie Dickens Trilogy and when not writing silly books, Mr. Ardagh is quite serious and frowns a great deal. He lives in a seaside town somewhere in England with his wife and their son, Fred.
