Call Me Isis

Call Me Isis

by Gretchen Maurer

Isis, Egyptian Goddess of Magic, thinks herself destined for a charmed life as the Goddess-Queen of Egypt. But in one fell swoop she loses her lover, her home, even her magical powers. For the sake of Egypt and her infant son, Horus, she has to put this topsy-turvy world aright. Her adventures take her out into the realm of humans, and down into the underworld. How will she reclaim Egypt’s throne for Horus, against the will of the evil usurper, Seth? Will she be able to save Egypt from ruin? And where can you find her now?
Told by Isis in the first person, this lively book gives young readers a unique entry into the world of Egyptian mythology. A nonfiction section illustrated with a family tree of the Egyptian pantheon, maps, and photographs, provides interesting cultural and historical context.
