Publisher's Summary

Boy of the Pyramids is the heartwarming story of the unlikely friendship that forms between an Egyptian nobleman's son, Kaffe, and Sari, a slave girl from the Sinai region. Together, they come to understand each other's cultures, learn the traditions and farming methods of the people who live along the Nile, uncover foul play during a bullfight, find themselves in danger while seeking adventure, understand Egyptian beliefs about the afterlife, and ultimately solve the mystery that is woven throughout the tale. This is an engaging story of family love, compassion, sacrifice, bravery, loyalty, and adventure!

Great book

My kids and I loved the story! Great writing, and loveable characters. The reader, we didn’t feel, is suited for this type of book. Her take with many of the characters was more angry and dramatic than we felt they needed to be, given the dialogue. I wonder if it was her first time reading the book. We’ll read it again soon as a read aloud rather than this particular audiobook.

very engaging

We planned to listen to one chapter a day. The narration was very good, and the story was enjoyable we found our son asking for more. It was a very good story and it was suggested as a read aloud in his G & B curriculum. When were studying ancient Egypt he said, that's like in our story!

Educational and entertaining.

My 8 year old granddaughter and I really enjoyed listening to this book. We were both disappointed when it ended. The person reading the book did a great job. Not only did we learn many things about ancient Egypt, the book held or interest and caused us to feel we were there in the midst of the story.
