Ancient Egypt… In the time of pyramids and pharaohs… A beautiful young princess travels to the grand city of Memphis–home to the legendary pharaoh Rhampsinitus. She intends to merely search the land for a husband, but while meeting with the local men, the princess becomes privy to a secret, sinister tale. The Treasured Thief is a story about desperation, thievery, and murder, but it is also a story about family, sacrifice, and love. As this secret tale is laid bare before her, the princess learns of three feats of impossible brotherhood, ingenuity, and boldness on the part of a man who dared thwart the will of a king.
“An entertaining tale of adventure and redemption set in ancient Egypt. . . . Nagar floods his striking artwork with a rich palette of ruby, sapphire, and gold . . . Foley does not steer away from grisly details of Egyptian life, including slavery and violence, although the illustrations are circumspect on these points.” — Publishers Weekly
“For readers, middle school and above, who want an adventure.” — ICv2
“I highly recommend Campfire’s comics. They do what they are intended to do and do it in a way that excites kids about classic literature.”
