The Riddle of the Rosetta Stone
James Cross Giblin
Publisher: HarperCollinsFormat: Paperback
“Until the Rosetta Stone was finally translated and the decoding of hieroglyphic writing made possible, much of Egyptian history was lost. The author has done a masterful job of distilling information, citing the highlights, and fitting it all together in an interesting and enlightening look at a puzzling subject.” —H. “The social and intellectual history here are fascinating. A handsome, inspiring book.” —K.Notable Children's Books of 1991 (ALA)Notable 1990 Children's Trade Books in Social Studies (NCSS/CBC)Children's Books of 1990 (Library of Congress)100 Books for Reading and Sharing (NY Public Library)Parenting Honorable Mention, Reading Magic Award
