• Hieroglyphics was the writing system used by Ancient Egyptians. Some hieroglyphs look like birds or strange creatures, while others seem little more than squiggles – but they would all have meant something in the time of The Kane Chronicles. • Egyptians used lots of different hiero-

glyphs, which were sometimes based on drawings of objects or the sound of particular words. In fact, there may have been several thousand different hieroglyphs, each representing a word, letter or concept. Above is one guide to the equivalent letters of our own A to Z. •You can use this alphabet to write anything you like. And because only people with the same alphabet can understand your words, it’s a great way to write

in code! Why not start by writing your name here?

•Now try to write the following words – all connected to The Kane Chronicles and ancient Egypt – in hieroglyphics: pyramid mummy Osiris sphinx Shabti

Snowdonia For the first week of the Easter holidays I went to Snowdonia, north Wales. It was a great experience, I never thought I would see so high mountains in England & Wales! It looked like the Alps with all the mountainside lakes. One of the days it was so windy that the lakes had waves on them! I would very much recommend staying in this area, especially in Betws-y-Coed and Bala. It is also fun for older kids as there is a go-karting circuit. Lorenzo Montani, 9 Well done Lorenzo, a Hop EB toy is on its way to you!
