Long DescriptionA Newbery Honor Book

Winner of a Newbery Honor, an exciting ancient Egyptian mystery!

Ranofer wants only one thing in the world: to be a master goldsmith like his beloved father was. But how can he when he is all but imprisoned by his evil half brother, Gebu? Ranofer knows the only way he can escape Gebu's abuse is by changing his destiny. But can a poor boy with no skills survive on the cutthroat streets of ancient Thebes? Then Ranofer finds a priceless golden goblet in Gebu's room and he knows his luck−and his destiny−are about to change.

"Exceptionally vivid, swiftpaced, and stirring."—The Horn Book

"An exhilarating story of the arduous fulfillment of a boy's dream . . . We are given a most worthy hero in Ranofer, one who struggles with his own fears and ideals, who smarts under his own cowardice, but who finds the power to rise to his own strength. This plus the vividly detailed setting make the book an excellent choice."—Kirkus Reviews

We just completed a major upgrade to the backend with a minor face lift to the web site. More changes are coming soon!

We completed the upgrade that changed the way we store company data and connect it to the product details. This required a set major database changes and some minor but important web site changes.

Over the next couple weeks we will roll out various other web site upgrades that make use of these new changes and provide you with better access to our data.

As always, if you see anything odd on the site, please let us know and we will get it fixed right away.
