Delaware County Library System - Juliann Manley

"The Prince and the Sphinx is a retelling of the Egyptian Myth about king Thutmose IV and how his brothers did not like him, how he saw the god Harmachis and then became a great pharaoh of Egypt." - Delaware County Library System

Library Media Connection - Elizabeth Dejean, Teacher Librarian, P.S. 360, Bronx, New York

"Retellings of Egyptian myths are not as easy to find as their Greek and Roman counterparts, so these high interest versions of selected myths are welcome additions to the collection. Each book begins with a list of characters and vocabulary, with introductory text that sets the stage for each story. Colorful, appealing, and often detailed full-page illustrations alternate with pages of narrative. The sometimes brief text is printed in a box surrounded by hieroglyphics on a colored background. This appealing and informative series is sure to be popular with students and teachers as well as readers who enjoyed the series of Greek myths also by Cari Meister. Bibliography. Websites. Highly Recommended." - Library Media Connection
