The Golden Goblet

The Golden Goblet
Eloise Jarvis McGraw

I love historical novels and that have mystery and adventure in them. This exciting tale has both.
Ranofer is virtually a slave for his half-brother, Gebu. He hates and distrusts him and wants to get away from him as soon as possible. When he finds the golden goblet in Gebu’s room, he knows that Gebu must have stolen it from one of the crypts in the City of the Dead. To finally get away from his hated half-brother he must prove that Gebu is guilty yet protect himself from the danger that lurks behind every corner.
This fantastic Newberry Honor book is for ages 10 and up.
“An exceptionally vivid, swiftpaced, and stirring” story recreating the glories and evils of Ancient Egypt- Horn Book
