Description



About the Book



In 1802, Jean-Francois Champollion was eleven years old. That year, he vowed to be the first person to read Egypt's ancient hieroglyphs. Champollion's dream was to sail up the Nile in Egypt and uncover the secrets of the past, and he dedicated the next twenty years to the challenge.
James Rumford introduces the remarkable man who deciphered the ancient Egyptian script and fulfilled a lifelong dream in the process. Stunning watercolors bring Champollion's adventure to life in a story that challenges the mind and touches the heart.



Book Synopsis



No one knew what Egyptian hieroglyphs said until amateur scholar Jean-Francois Champollion deciphered them. In this picture book biography, students will follow along as Champollion cracks the code.
