My Year 4 class thoroughly enjoyed this story. The events were easy to follow and there was sufficient historical fact, some of which the class already knew but also one or two new facts. It linked our Literacy and Topic themes (Stories with a Historical Setting and Ancient Egypt) marvelously and led to some excellent writing by the class.
The book would be good for independent reading and could also be linked to other Literacy themes. The remaining books in the series are definitely going on my wish list.
