"informative and fascinating history of the Hatshepsut sphinx: from its carving in ancient Egypt to its arrival in the hallowed halls of New York City’s Metropolitan Museum of Art."

A nonfiction tale structured with a cumulative telling. I wouldn't suggest reading this aloud to a group of kids because the specific vocabulary may be more interesting to kids dreaming of being an archeologist or curator.
