ZET KID DETECTIVE SERIES -
SECRET OF THE EGYPTIAN CURSE
Egypt: Ramses is an orphan with a strange skill. He has a magical talent for drawing. His pictures of the gods are so real that they appear to breathe with life. The sight terrifies Ramses' evil caretakers, who call him cursed and punish him for his unique powers. But not everyone thinks he's cursed. When Ramses' parents were alive, they loved him and called his talent a gift. He doesn't know who or what to believe anymore. Then, famous craftsmen come looking for an artist to paint the walls of
Tutankhamun's tomb. Ramses longs to win the position. If he does, he might just find where he belongs. But if he fails, he'll never escape his cruel caretakers.
A boy tries to become a painter in King Tut's unbuilt tomb. At the base of the Valley of the Kings in ancient Egypt lies a craftsmen's village. For centuries, its people have painted the tombs of kings. No outsiders have been allowed to join their ranks. But now, their ranks are dwindling. They desperately need an apprentice.
On a nearby farm, Ramses, an orphan with a strange skill, believes he is destined to go there. Ramses has a magic talent for catching the gods inside his drawings. He must fight to understand his frightening powers. He must struggle against the people sworn to care for him, against hundreds of years of tradition, against the gods themselves, to fulfill his destiny.
A magical, feel-good story about one boy's struggle against terrible odds. "Spine tingling!" "Inspirational!" Readers of all ages will be touched by this story of family, rejection, and triumph as an orphan fights to fulfill a destiny his caretakers refuse to recognize.
