Secrets of the Sphinx
by James Cross Giblin;  illustrated by Bagram Ibatoulline

The Great Sphinx is one of the largest sculptures in the world. Six stories high and a city block wide, it has stood over the pyramids of Egypt's Giza Plateau for 4,500 years. Who built it and why? And how did such primitive sculptors carve it? The reader is taken back to a time before written history, and sees the clues left behind by Egyptians. Fascinating information on the pyramids, the Rosetta Stone, Atlantis, and more.
