    Great Pyramid October 26, 2010
    Reviewer: Misty Marr from Buckeye, AZ United States  
    I can't recommend this book based on the dress of the Egyptian women. Besides that, it was very interesting to read all the work that went into building the pyramids. The architect involved was amazing.  Reading about the dynamics of the Egyptians was also enlightening as to why the Egyptians did the things that they did in the Bible.

    I'm so glad I took the plunge and ordered it July 29, 2009
    Reviewer: Keeley B. from Franklin, TN  
    ...I bought the historical graphic novels as a way to get my middle schooler into reading something somewhat educational. =D  I didn't hand them to him, I told him they were mine.  He could read the Tintin, but I was going to read these historical ones first.  Muhahahaha.  Of course, he started sneaking them....and enjoying them.... =D =D

    So anyway, we've been having just a delightful time with the shipment of books.  I'm so very impressed with your company.  The confirmation email came immediately, the books were shipped out very quickly, and arrived in absolutely excellent condition.   Thank you so very much.
