Explorers are designed to appeal to all readers aged 6--8: those who are just starting to read alone and more confident readers who are beginning to exercise wider reading and crossreferencing skills. Lively, dramatic artwork scenes draw children into a subject, and each scene is followed by a photographic information spread that gives a wealth of extra detail. As a fun extra element, the reader can follow themed links to access information on related topics. Ancient Egypt is an adventure to discover this fascinating ancient world, unlocking the secrets of pharaohs, pyramids and gods, and finding out about everyday life thousands of years ago.
Jinny Johnson has written and edited dozens of non-fiction titles for young children on a diverse range of subjects. Her engaging narratives present information in an original and straightforward way. She lives in London.
