Inside this indispensable and beautifully illustrated workbook is everything you need to know to become an esteemed Egyptologist.

As readers of the fascinating EGYPTOLOGY are all too aware, the feisty explorer Emily Sands mysteriously vanished on an expedition up the Nile in 1927. But in a remarkable turn of fortune for Miss Sands's many fans, detectives have uncovered a second volume penned in her own hand -- a course book on ancient Egyptian history and culture intended for the voyager's beloved niece and nephew. Now available to budding Egyptologists everywhere, this comprehensive volume -- illustrated by the same artists who lent their talents to EGYPTOLOGY -- is brimming with facts on ancient Egyptian culture and history, followed by intriguing assignments and fill-in opportunities on everything from archaeological finds to theories on how the pyramids were built.

Among the book's delightful novelty elements are:

-- An envelope containing Miss Emily Sands's Top Ten Things to See in Egypt
-- Flaps to lift, revealing hidden treasure in desert sands
-- A four-page foldout section full of stickers featuring treasures from King Tut's tomb and other ancient Egyptian artifacts.
