A Newbery Honor winner!

Ranofer wants only one thing in the world: to be a master goldsmith like his beloved father was. But how can he when he is all but imprisoned by his evil half brother, Gebu? Ranofer knows the only way he can escape Gebu’s abuse is by changing his destiny. But can a poor boy with no skills survive on the cutthroat streets of ancient Thebes? Then Ranofer finds a priceless golden goblet in Gebu’s room and he knows his luck-and his destiny-are about to change.

    " I think this book is cool because Ranofer finds a goblet and makes it into a golden object.Also Ranofer say that he stole the goblet. That is a mystery and that is why I like this book. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Britt | 1/30/2014

    " We read this for our kid's book club this month. It was good for my kids to be exposed to another era, a different culture and a lot of new vocabulary. But it was a little too slow and too violent for my young readers. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Brielle | 1/28/2014

    " It's a good story about a very likeable character, Ranofer. It's not the most thrilling book I've ever read, but I felt like I learned something about Egypt and that it would be appropriate for a younger reader. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Charlotte | 1/10/2014

    " This book was okay. I did like it because at times the storyline would pick up some speed and something good would happen but a lot of times I was left thinking, Why did this happen? What does this have to do with the story? I think that it was a little to old-fashioned if you know what I mean. "
