Anubis Speaks!

A Guide To The Afterlife By The Egyptian God Of The Dead

By Vicky Shecter

Anubis, the ancient Egyptian jackal-headed god of embalming, invites young readers to climb aboard his magic boat for a trip to the Land of the Dead. When the sun goes down, readers join Anubis as he and Ra, the sun god, fight the forces of chaos and destruction unleashed by the Evil One, a giant snake named Apophis. It’s a battle waged each night until sunrise when the forces of good prevail. During the journey, readers will meet gods, monsters, and pharaohs, learn the techniques of mummification, and help Ra conquer darkness and bring light to the world at dawn. Through the character of Anubis, the author takes a fresh and humorous first-person approach to nonfiction. Each chapter offers young readers a fact-filled and ghoulishly amusing look at ancient Egyptian beliefs. Includes a glossary and index.
