A beautiful companion to the original book, Egyptology: Search for the Tomb of Osiris. In 1926, Miss Emily Sands led an expedition up the Nile in search of the tomb of the god Osiris. Alas, Miss Sands and crew soon vanished into the desert, never to be seen again. This lovely coloring book gives fans of the original book a careful look into the mysterious journal of Miss Emily during her final expedition. Each coloring page is based on a drawing from Emily Sands’ journal, some of which were sent to her young niece and nephew, encouraging them to paint the illustrations with the vivid colors these artifacts and structures once had in ancient Egypt.
I am a huge fan of ancient Egypt and have been since I was a child. Books like this help spark a child’s imagination, carrying them into the mysterious and mystifying past of the ancient world. I was particularly excited to see how this book, and the original, focused on a female leading such an expedition in 1926.
My only criticism is that some of the beautiful details of the drawings were lost due to the smaller size. The publisher chose to show all of the original drawings, when a closer zoomed in view might have been more appropriate for a child’s coloring book. And the script font used for entry titles was often difficult to read the Egyptian names. However, the lessons learned from the diary entries of Emily’s journal far outweigh any issues with design.
Nevertheless, this coloring book will spark your child’s imagination and the mysteries described along Emily’s journey will introduce them to a whole new world of the ancient past.
