Description
Who really built the pyramids, and how did they do it? This virtual journey unfolds step by step, revealing the story behind the construction of King Khufu's final resting place, the Great Pyramid of Giza. Panoramic storyboard sequences with digital imagery and numerous captions take readers 8 to 11 some 4500 years into the past to see one of the Seven Wonders of the Ancient World rise from the desert. Eyewitness accounts and archaeological findings describe what it was like to see the pyramid in all its glory and witness the burial of a pharaoh. The book includes a removable poster more than 5 1/2 feet long.

"[Peter] Chrisp guides readers through a graphic path of storyboard text superimposed on full-color illustrations to show the steps involved in building and the history behind the Great Pyramid of Giza. A discussion of the settlement of the Nile, a catalog of tools used in the construction, a description of the steps taken when a pharaoh died, mummification, the rediscovery of the tombs and their secrets, illustrations of the treasures found within them, and a catalog of the pyramids of the world make this a comprehensive study of the subject. Definitions of new terms are found along the bottom of each page and are highlighted in the text."School Library Journal
