Our teacher told us to read chapters 5 and 6 for homework. The only problem was I could not put it down. I realy wish she could have made a second book to it

Actually, one of the reasons this book is so great is because it gives you just enough detail to know what it was like, but it leaves enough unsaid so the reader can complete the picture in his/her own mind in a way that words could never accomplish. If you want to talk about going into a lot of details, read Charles Dickinson....funny how he gave a lot more detailes than McGraw, yet he's considered one of the greatest writers of all time.

I have been assigned to read this book for school and answer questions that looked pretty boring. When I started reading it, I became more interested. It teaches you how ancient Egyptian life was. This book is about a young Egyptain goldsmith named Ranofer who is under control of his evil and greedy half-brother Gebu, after his father, Thutra dies. In chapter 4, he is forced to have the cruel job as a stonecutting apperentice as a punishment. However, in chapter 10, he discovers a golden goblet that Gebu stole from a tomb. Any tombrider would be hanged and executed. Unfortunatly, Ranofer has no way of accusing his evil master of this crime, no one would believe him. With the support of his loyal friends Heqet and the "Ancient One", Ranofer goes off to reveal this shameful crime. I haven't still finished reading, but I can't wait untill I do.
You should definetly get it.
No wonder it has won the Newbery award and is a class assignment!
