The King Herself
1500 Years Before Christ: Hatshepsut, King of Upper and Lower Egypt - a woman - rules over the greatest civilisation in the world. But not everyone is happy about it.
35 Centuries Later: Danny, an unusually gifted 12 year-old, becomes obsessed with ancient Egypt and the king herself. His teacher, the beguiling Professor Celluka, takes Danny and his friend Katy on a journey out of mind, and out of time.
...AND THE FUTURE'S HISTORY
Review by Adele Geras,
'This book is just the ticket for lovers of everything Egyptian. A very entertaining read, I must say. I'm sure children will enjoy it, too.'
Review by Joyce Tyldesley,
Egyptologist and author of 'Hatchepsut'
gripping tale packed full of mystery, excitement and time-travel, which
brings ancient Egypt truly to life. As an Egyptologist I am in favour of any
book which explores the ancient world. Here, the portrayal of the reign of
the female pharaoh Hatshepsut is accurate

The World of
THE KING HERSELF
Here you can find fascinating background stuff on every chapter - Hatshepsut, her temple, and lots more. I suggest you read each chapter first to avoid spoilers!
