Title: Awesome Egyptians

The Ancient Egyptians are one of my favourite historical civilisations and so perhaps it’s no surprise that I enjoyed reading this one. Deary has a knack for writing about history in a way that’s engaging for both children and adults, and while I don’t think I necessarily learned anything new, I’ve already read a lot of books on the subject. For a kid, it’d be a great little introduction into who the Egyptians were and how their culture worked.
The only reason I can’t give it 4* is that I was getting annoyed by the quizzes again. They’re designed to make the book more fun for kids, but as an adult I just wanted to be able to read the information. But I got over it.
