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.

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.

Great Historical Fiction

A great historical fiction read for my children (6 and 11 y.o.). It was an exciting adventure tale, full of historical information of what life must have been like for a pyramid boy.
