Tales of Ancient Egypt
These stories include the great myths - of Amen-Ra, who created all the creatures in the world; of Isis, seaching the waters for her dead husband Osiris; of the Bennu Bird and the Book of Thoth.

With a witty introduction by award-winning author, poet and former Children's Laureate, Michael Rosen.
