Review:

Many homeschool families use G.A. Henty’s historical fiction books as part of their history instruction. Henty’s books are said to be very historically accurate, and they are written from a Christian worldview. The books are very well written and contain a rich, varied vocabulary as well as examples of high moral principles such as honesty, selflessness, and loyalty. Although The Cat of Bubastes: A Tale of Ancient Egypt is challenging reading, it is a fantastic, exciting story brimming with historical facts about Ancient Egypt. I heartily agree with reviewer Principled American: “If you’re looking to provide historically rich literature for your home, the Henty series is an excellent option. Besides the obvious enjoyment of reading a book based on historical facts, these stories are an easy way to increase the reader’s patience and attention span. Additionally, immersing oneself in skillful writing is a simple method of promoting good grammar.”
