    Jacqueline Morley. Egyptian Myths. NTC/Contemporary Publishing Group, Inc., Lincolnwood, IL. 1999. Although I could not find a recommended age range for this book, I would say it would probably be appropriate for approximately ages 12 through 18, or even to adulthood. The myths contained in this book are ancient, yet probably unknown to most people. Similar to Greek myths, these stories tell how certain customs began in Egypt, or explain certain natural phenomena. The myth being reviewed from t Jacqueline Morley. Egyptian Myths. NTC/Contemporary Publishing Group, Inc., Lincolnwood, IL. 1999. Although I could not find a recommended age range for this book, I would say it would probably be appropriate for approximately ages 12 through 18, or even to adulthood. The myths contained in this book are ancient, yet probably unknown to most people. Similar to Greek myths, these stories tell how certain customs began in Egypt, or explain certain natural phenomena. The myth being reviewed from this compilation is The Wanderings of Isis. In a previous story, the god Osiris, once ruler of Egypt, has been murdered by his evil brother Set. This story picks up with Osiris’s goddess wife Isis searching for Osiris’s missing body and Set has become ruler of Egypt. Set imprisons Isis, but with the help of the wise god Thoth, she is able to escape. She goes into hiding and eventually finds out that Osiris’s body had landed in Byblos, in Syria. Through a series of tricks and negotiations Isis re-acquires her husband’s body and returns it to Egypt for burial. However, the evil Set unfortunately discovers the body, and tears Osiris’s body into 14 pieces and scatters them to throughout the lengths of Egypt. Isis begins a new search to recover Osiris, and eventually finds all 14 pieces of his body. The powerful god Ra hears the mournful cries of Isis over her husband Osiris, and decides to send the jackal-headed Anubis to help her. Anubis shows Isis how to bind together the pieces of her husband’s body with linen bandages. This, of course, is the first mummy of Egypt came to be made and after this all Egyptians wrapped their dead in this way. Isis fans life back into Osiris with her wings and is able to restore him to half-life, and Ra decrees that Osiris shall over the land of the dead. This story is told over five pages, and includes a color illustration on each page which shows us some element of the story. Through the images we get to see what these unusual gods and goddesses look like, as well as Egyptian dress and story elements. The book as a whole is unique in that most of us probably don’t know Egyptian myths at all, or certainly not like Greek myths. And interesting read, and would really go well with 6th grade history (ancient civilizations) with the unit on ancient Egypt. These stories could be used in either the history class as a supplement, or in English/reading class as a compliment to students’ history class.
