Description: For more than 15 centuries, no one could read the strange-looking Egyptian hieroglyphs. And then in 1799 a French soldier in Napoleon's army in Egypt stumbled across the Rosetta Stone, an ancient inscription recorded in Greek, hieroglyphs, and demotic script.

Carol Donoughue tells us the fascinating story of the race to decipher the Rosetta Stone, explaining how the hieroglyphic writing system began with simple drawings of everyday objects. She compares the hieroglyphs to modern alphabets in an entertaining narrative, complemented with numerous photographs and drawings, maps, historical timelines stretching from ancient Egypt to Napoleon, a glossary, and sidebars -all designed to help young readers understand Egyptian life and culture. A final section displays an alphabet of "hieroglyphs" and offers some fun activities for children based on hieroglyphic writing.
