Who better than Anubis, the jackal-headed god of mummification, to serve as a guide through the dreaded Land of the Dead? In this fresh and imaginative approach to nonfiction, the first title in the Secrets of the Ancient Gods series, Anubis steers the reader through the Egyptian dark lands. Along the way, they meet fearsome gods and gruesome monsters. And they witness the battle of the gods against Apophis, the giant demon-snake trying to devour the world. With ghoulish humor and lots of attitude (he is a god, after all), Anubis introduces readers to ancient Egyptian beliefs and rituals--including the secrets of mummification--with panache and, if he does say so himself, drop-dead humor. Includes glossary, bibliography, and index.

Anubis is kind of smarmy and smart mouthed, but this book really breaks down a lot of information about Ancient Egypt. I enjoyed it. Kids with a keen interest in Egypt will love it.
