An immersive story of daily life in ancient Egypt.

This extraordinary translation of a tale by Michael Hoffen, a 16-year-old young author, will acquaint readers with the life of a teenage boy in ancient Egypt and show readers that working for a living has never been easy!

Sail up the Nile with an ancient Egyptian father and son and discover what daily life was like along the way. Experience the wonderful world of ancient Egypt with the help of countless artificats and paintings. Delight in four-thousand-year-old humor and immerse yourself in the choices facing a teenage boy in Egypt then.

'Few visitors to the British Museum can actually read the ancient words on the artefacts — but one teenager has turned an object’s script into a book. . . Michael, who comes from New York, is the recipient of the Emerson prize for outstanding promise in history. His passion for the subject was fired as a young boy by Usborne and Dorling Kindersley books—and he now has his own title, Be A Scribe.' - The Times

'Prepare to be amazed and amused by the history and wit in this wonderful new translation of Khety’s advice to his son Pepi. Michael Hoffen is an astonishing talent and in this outstanding debut brings a fresh perspective to the fascinating world of ancient Egypt. Beautifully illustrated, brilliantly conceived, and brimming with joy, Be a Scribe is destined to become a classic.' - Dr. Amanda Foreman
