My Special Egyptian Adventure Book - By Ryan

From a couple of posts back you will see the details about me getting an egyptian tomb kit made from Hirst Arts blocks. This is a special project for my eldest son Ryan, but as it is so special, he had to do something special for me. My request was that he wrote me a suitable story, based on an Egyptian adventure. At first he was a little reluctant, but I said it didn't have to be very long, I would be more than happy for him just to try.


Well, he exceeded all my expectations. He produced a little booklet, with a brilliant story (He had a little help from mum, for spelling), but for the most part, the whole idea and story progression was entirely his work. I am SO impressed. So I have copied off a few sample pages.



This first page is the cover to The Mummy Of Doom



as you can see the story revolves around me finding an old key and door, going in to discover untold treasure, but being chased off and almost caught by the Mummy....


...fortunatley the tomb collapses, crushing the Mummy, and I escape with my life, if not the treasure.

This was a really well thought out story,and the treatment is perfect. The pages have been stained with the old tea-bag aging treatment which works perfectly.

Can you tell - I am SO, SO proud of my sons achievment?

You should be very proud of your son. Mine has done similar stuff and I am always bragging on him. Good job, Ryan!
