Ancient Egypt, by Catherine C. Finan - paperback

"Did you know ancient Egyptians would shave their eyebrows in mourning if their cats died? Or that the first pharaoh may have been killed by a trampling hippo? You may know that a mummy's brain was removed through its nose before the body was wrapped up. But did you know that the ancient Egyptians threw the brain away and kept his heart as the center of intelligence instead? Discover extreme facts about ancient Egypt in this fun and kooky book"--, Provided by publisher
