Tony Robinson's Weird World of Wonders: Egyptians
Join Tony and the Curiosity Crew on a journey through ancient Egypt, discovering some of the strangest, funniest, and most curious facts!
Did you know that one block from a pyramid weighs the same as a humpback whale? Or that ancient Egyptians ate mice cooked in oil as a cure for grey hair? Discover loads of facts and stories about fascinating mummies, strange-looking gods and fighting Egyptians in this fun non-fiction book. The Curiosity Crew bring the stories to life by appearing on every page with lots of photographs, cartoons and drawings.
I loved discovering more about the ancient Egyptians and really enjoyed that this book had lots of amazing facts that I didn’t know. I even learned an Egyptian joke! Since reading it, I’ve looked at our ancient Egyptian objects in the museum differently – now I know some of their secrets!
