About the Author

Dugald Steer has written many books for children including the best-selling DRAGONOLOGY and its companion, THE DRAGONOLOGY HANDBOOK, as well as the forthcoming WIZARDOLOGY. For ten years he was an editor at Templar Publishing in England, but he now devotes himself full-time to writing. Other books he has written include, THE NIGHT TIGER, JUST ONE MORE STORY, and PICTURE THIS . . . (with Alison Jay). For the moment, though, it seems more "ologies" are in the offing.

Nghiem Ta, Artistic Direction: Nghiem Ta works as a designer and paper-engineer at Templar where she has overseen the creation of the best-selling DRAGONOLOGY and EGYPTOLOGY, as well as the forthcoming WIZARDOLOGY. Prior to working with Templar, she spent four years with pop-up maestro Ron van der Meer. Her current projects include more books with "ology" in the title.

Ian Andrew, Artist: Ian Andrew created the black and white pencil illustrations for EGYPTOLOGY and THE EGYPTOLOGY HANDBOOK. He is an accomplished animator having worked on the animated film, "Dolphins" which won several awards including Best Newcomer at the Zagreb Film Festival. He has illustrated many books for children including JIM'S LION by Russell Hoban and TELL ME ONE THING, DAD by Tom Pow.

Nick Harris, Artist: Nick Harris created the large color illustrations in EGYPTOLOGY on his computer. In addition to forays into animated TV advertising, he spent a spell working in the background department on the feature film, "Who Framed Roger Rabbit?" He has illustrated many books for children including the Smarties book Prize-winning FIREWORK MAKER'S DAUGHTER by Phillip Pullman.

Helen Ward, Artist: Helen Ward, who also worked on DRAGONOLOGY, painted the many color recreations of Ancient Egyptian statues, wall paintings, and antiquities as well as the 1920s memorabilia that appear in EGYPTOLOGY. Helen has also written a number of successful children's books including THE TIN FOREST and THE DRAGON MACHINE, both illustrated by Wayne Anderson.

5.0 out of 5 stars Kids Love to Write Hieroglyphs! Oct. 4 2008
By Lynn Ellingwood - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Stationery
Kids love the ology series and this is a way for kids to write "secret" messages in hieroglyphs. This is a great way for kids to have fun with writing hieroglyphs and learning about another writing system.

3.0 out of 5 stars Good for a young writer Nov. 9 2010
By SunTrish - Published on Amazon.com

This is a companion to the wonderful Emily Sands books about ancient Egypt. The kit contains writing paper and stickers with an Egyptian motif. It would be enjoyed by an elementary school age child who enjoys Egypt and also writing letters. Though packaged quite cleverly, there are no "code-writing" instructions, just 16 sheets of notepaper, 16 envelopes, 6 postcards and a few stickers. It is not a craft activity, just stationery.
