Egyptian Diary Summary

Egyptian Diary by Richard Platt

Step back over three thousand years with this fascinating journal by the creators of "Pirate Diary" and "Castle Diary". The year is 1465 BC and Nakht's family is moving from their village to Memphis, where his father has just become an important scribe. With Nakht, we explore this bustling Egyptian city: visiting the craftsmen's workshops and the shipyards; watching a burial ritual; and learning how the land is farmed, how houses are built and how to fish and hunt. Most thrilling of all, he and his sister, Tamyt, witness a tomb robbery in the pyramids, and end up meeting the King of Egypt (who happens to be a woman!).;"Pirate Diary" won the Kate Greenaway Medal, the Silver Smarties Book Prize and the Best Factual Book Blue Peter Award.
