The Gods are Watching, Paperback / softback Book

The Gods are Watching Paperback / softback

Part of the Black Cats series


A page-turning thriller from an acclaimed writer. Set in ancient Egypt, this is the story of a young boy, Varro, and his flight from danger as he is pursued along the River Nile by an opportunistic lord.

He is believed to be carrying something very valuable - but has no idea what it could be.

Full of authentic detail about ancient Egypt, rich imagery of the lush delta plains and the forbidding stone-carved monuments to gods, and exciting, nail-biting tension.

The story culminates in an exciting face-to-face encounter with the legendary pharaoh.

Acclaim for the series: '...a quartet of books with robust child appeal ...the brief is clearly to appeal to those recently emerging from reading schemes but requiring continuing support.

But the stories have a fresh originality that will make them great favourites' - Lindsey Fraser, Guardian Education Book of the Week, 13/05/03.
