Description

Khepri meets the Pharaoh, Prince of Egypt, for the first time one morning in the shadow of the temple walls, and a friendship springs up between them. When Khepri discovers a terrible trap in the Pharaoh's newly-built tomb designed to kill, he knows he must warn the Prince. But how? For Khepri is just a small scarab beetle who scuttles along floors, among roots and into baskets of figs. How Khepri saves the Pharaoh's life and receives the highest honour of all is hauntingly told and dramatically illustrated in an original tale of ancient Egypt, which includes an historical end note on tomb-building and the Pharaohs.
