Product Info

When children catch their initial glimpse of a pyramid, a sea of questions inevitably tumbles forth."" Who developed them? (Ages 9 and older) --Gail Hudson"Perplexed adults can sigh with relief now that David Macaulay has identified a strategy to thoroughly answer all those deserving questions. Just when the narrative teeters on the edge of textbook doldrums, Macaulay brings us back for the engaging human drama of death and superstition."Why are they shaped like that? This respectful blending of architecture, history, and mysticism will certainly satiate pyramid-passionate children too as their obliging parents. His exquisitely crosshatched pen-and-ink illustrations frame the engaging fictional story of an ancient pharaoh who commissions a pyramid to be built for him. ALA Notable Book. With great patience and respect for minute detail (not not like the creators in the early pyramids) , Macaulay explains the sometimes backbreaking tasks of planning, hauling, chiseling, digging, and hoisting that went into the construction of this awe-inspiring monument."" How had been they made?"" What were they employed for?
