new in nonfiction

ANCIENT EGYPT: TALES OF GODS AND PHARAOHS by Marcia Williams (Candlewick Press 2011)uses a picture book/ GN format to tell the stories of Tut, Thutmose, Cleopatra, and other important gods and leaders of the ancient Egyptians. Illustrations move from double page spreads to GN panels and serve to emphasize the importance of the action being described in the text. This book would make a great accompaniment to Rick Riordan's book based on Egyptian mythology. <26>
