FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE: Author Catherine Y. Fridey has tapped into her love of time travel and archaeology to write the first in a series of books exploring those themes through the journeys of her spunky heroine, Jillian Spencer, and her companion and mentor, Mezradine Bakri. Within the dark labyrinth of an archaeological dig in the Egyptian desert, Jill and Mez open a sarcophagus. They are disappointed to find it was looted in ancient times and only contains a few artifacts. However, one of the artifacts directs them to further clues that lead them to more of the tomb. Jill suddenly finds herself alone in a corridor of the ancient past, where Egyptian myths and customs come alive. Along the way, she fights royal cobras and witnesses an Ancient Egyptian funeral procession and rituals.
This truly multimedia book includes lively illustrations by the author, audio performances, and video animatics to bring the story to life. There is also a “Field Notes” section where the reader can explore Jill’s notes about her finds. Throughout the book, links to educational resources allow the reader to explore and find more information about archaeology and Ancient Egypt. The book is geared toward readers age 7 and up, and is available in the iTunes bookstore.
It will soon be available for the Nook tablet as well.
