The pictured wall of an Egyptian tomb supplied the inspiration for this unusual story, which takes place during the building of the Great Pyramid of Khufu more than 4,000 years ago. Kaffe and Sari, an Egyptian noble’s son and a slave girl from the nomadic Sand People, help solve a troublesome mystery and trap its culprit. All told against a colorfully detailed backdrop of ancient Egypt.
