- Booklist Reviews : Booklist Reviews 2019 October #2
The latest set of books to join the Gods & Goddesses of the Ancient World series (8 new titles) is devoted to ancient Egyptian deities. Over the course of five brief chapters, each book describes the featured god or goddess, the way (or ways) he or she was depicted, where the deity is positioned within the greater pantheon, and what aspects of life ancient Egyptians believed the god or goddess controlled. In Hapi, Loh-Hagan introduces this god of the Nile and his tie to the annual inundation. Unfortunately, the overly simplified sentences and largely incidental illustrations (which lack captions) muddy the clarity of information within the books. Each title is, however, usefully equipped with text boxes that offer cross-cultural or scientific connections and a page of fast facts. The high-interest subject and pick-me-up appeal of the books will certainly attract readers; but have more in-depth resources on hand for the inevitable questions these series installments will spark.
