I'm a big kid and an Egypt / Museum / Archaeology fan. This story was original and great for kids, or those who are trying to get a basic grasp of Ancient Egyptian culture or Hieroglyphs. An enjoyable read and BONUS, it comes with a CD-Rom that allows you to add a Hieroglyph font to your computer! I love it.
