    This fun and colourful children's book follows the ancient Egyptian man Hunefer ('Mr Happy-Day') on his magical journey to the afterlife, as shown in the beautiful papyrus that was buried with him. For ages 7-11, children can start to understand what Egyptians thought about religion, life and death by looking up close to a real Egyptian Book of the Dead. The Papyrus of Hunefer is one of the most striking and famous items in the British Museum's Egyptian collections, illustrated with detailed coloured paintings of the highest quality. Hunefer's papyrus was buried with hi, and contains his personal selection of spells from what we now call the Book of the Dead.

    Ideal for children studying Ancient Egypt at school, this illuminating book follows Hunefer on his magical journey and, in a very simple way, accessible and visual way, demonstrates Ancient Egyptian beliefs.
