Wonderful storytelling. I put a hold on the book at the library quite a while ago (they obviously need more copies!) to research it for use at the school where I work. Not only is the fictional story well told, the illustrations are fantastic. The illustrator Deborah Nourse Lattimore is a "student of Egyptology and an art historian specializing in Egyptian, pre-Colombian, and classical art" so states the book jacket blurb. Really exceptional illustrations.

It's too complex for kids and not detailed enough for anyone who might hold the slightest interest in Egypt. A glossary might have been nice, assuming this is for kids.
Erin Sterling
This is a story of how a monument in Egypt was built to honor a king that is part man and part lion. The text is really wordy, so it might be hard to adapt for storytelling, but the story is an interesting look at how the Sphinx might have been created.
